There’s a bit of a rock vibe at this Park Slope vintage shop, from the gothic lettering on the awning to the quirky, changing front-window scenes. Inside, co-owners Francesca Neville and Kevin Omen stock the racks with similarly wild looks. The women’s side is full of girlishly retro dresses and skirts, with a small selection of dated corseted swimwear and garter-adorned lingerie. Purses cover the walls and display tables, mainly boxy leather handbags and delicate clutches. There’s an impressive collection of vintage jewelry up front, as well as a selection of eyeglass frames and sunglasses. For men, the stock is heavy on button-down shirts, quirky ties, and vests. The store’s in-house line, Born Again, offers vintage pieces — mainly dresses — that have been re-styled for a more modern fit.
