Profile

After living in Fort Greene since childhood, siblings Kana and Shunya Togashi opened this vintage-clothing and flower shop a few doors down from their apartment in fall 2009. The welcoming spot is artfully arranged, with vases of flowers and hand-painted gifts from Shunya's travels to Argentina and France scattered about. The small but selective vintage selection caters to both sexes: Pendleton coats and sixties workwear for men, antique leather bags, vintage ties, and well-preserved boots. Many of the wares come from the Togashis' grandmother in Japan, including intricately beaded handbags, vintage sterling-silver and turquoise jewelry, and thick kimonos that put Topshop's knockoffs to shame (the siblings also learned to arrange flowers from their grandmother during annual visits to Asia). The seasonal floral offerings range from $1 single blooms to lush $15 stalks of hydrangeas.
