Profile

This venue is closed.

Vintage shops are a dime a dozen, but Peggy Pardon stands out for its aversion to the most recently resuscitated trends. While other purveyors are riding the eighties-revival wave with racks of Kamali and Stephen Sprouse, this sweet little shop has an aesthetic firmly rooted in the thirties, forties, and fifties. Owner Sasha Huetz is drawn to clothing from these decades because, she says, “it’s the period when women were ladylike, when they made a real effort to look pretty and feminine.” Accordingly, Huetz stocks lots of dresses: Eisenhower-era cocktail gowns with nipped waists and full chiffon skirts; swingy, hand-beaded flapper dresses; sultry Maggie the Cat chemises trimmed with lace. Huetz hangs each piece with a handwritten tag explaining the garment’s provenance and construction; she likes to “educate the customers about what they’re putting on, where and when it came from.” Huetz has introduced a few of her own small-run designs into the mix, including drapey silk blouses in rich colors like deep teal and creamy gold.
