Located in a former candy shop, this sunny vintage boutique sells lovingly restored 1930s to 1980s vintage goods that come from across the U.S., Hong Kong, China, and Japan. Vintage Singer sewing machines perch on the windowsills; the light shades are cheap, colorful plastic baskets soldered together; and an old leather suitcase, bisected and mounted on a wall, acts as a display case for ties in cornflower and periwinkle. Clothes, stacks of Chinese propaganda posters, shoe-filled bookshelves, and crates of albums fill the nostalgic space. Records play as owner Wendy Yang and her assistants sew at machines on slim tables in a back corner of the shop, mending and altering vintage garments. Women’s pieces are subtle and restrained, like a pleated, calf-length navy skirt with white polka dots; a structured, silk white blouse with delicate ruffling along the collarbone, or a trim kitchen apron studded with pale pink flowers. The limited menswear selection includes suspenders, slim-silhouetted pants, and stiff, collared shirts. Yang also makes custom creations for clients—like an updated 1960s wedding dress—and designs original pieces under the shop’s eponymous label. Seasonal sewing classes lure local DIYers into the shop on weeknights.
