Profile

This airy East Village vintage shop forgoes the crowded, musty charm of nearby Cobblestones and Fabulous Fanny’s in favor of a sparser, more modern vibe. You’ll find no unmarked piles of vintage kitsch here; apparel and accessories from the 1950s through 80s is arranged neatly on racks, with each tag detailing the era and fabric as well as price (most items sell for between $100 and $200). Owner Satoshi Maruoka, an F.I.T grad, sources his collection from East Coast antique shows and vintage dealers, focusing on rich fabrics and quality construction rather than designer names. The selection skews toward the 70s and 80s, with African print dresses, leather ankle boots, Charles Jourdan pumps, velvet clutches, and gold brooches and cuff bracelets. A limited number of more dated items can be found among the vibrant fashions of the 80s, like a shapely one-piece swimsuit from the 60s and a full, paneled skirt in blue and white gingham from the 1950s.
