Profile

Visiting this casual Park Slope thrift shop is like digging through the attic of an impossibly cool grandma, filled wall-to-wall with a hodgepodge of vintage men's and women's clothing, jewelry, art, records, books, and knickknacks. Owner Suzette Sundae has been selling vintage clothes and tchotchkes since she opened her first shop in Massachusetts at the age of 17. Her knack for finding fashion gems is evident in the store’s funky inventory, with gowns from the thirties, bathing suits from the forties, antique lingerie, and men’s jackets from every era packing the racks and sometimes spilling over onto the sidewalk. Sundae's business partner, Peter Pancucci, is in charge of selecting the antiques, records, books, and knickknacks that sprawl across one side of the shop, and the carved wooden boxes, hand-painted mirrors, and dog-eared albums add to the store's offbeat charm. Sundae's tiny dog, Dottie, is a regular at the store, so don't be surprised if you're greeted with a lick on the ankle.
