Retail Superstar!

I've been to many a vintage shop but I have to say that this is by far the friendliest and most down to earth one yet! If you have the luck to stop in when the owner is in, you'll spend some quality time in the company of a lovely lady. Always a great conversation and honest feedback. I highly recommend this tucked away spot for great vintage finds at a very reasonable price. A+

Amazing local business, fabulous vintage!

I always find something new and surprising at 1 of a Find. The people there are fun and so are the clothes! I have found high waisted jeans and skirts, snakeskin belts, sexy pumps, and beautifully feminine dresses that I would have never initially looked for. But after 15 minutes at 1 of a Find, you'll definitely find unique, high quality vintage that will make you rethink your whole style and feel fabulous!

1 of a Find is SUCH a find!! The store is full of cool and well preserved pieces. Some items have been re-styled so that they retain their vintage charm but are modern and funky. It's fun to shop there - it's not packed full of stuff like other vintage stores, so there's no digging involved. And the prices are so reasonable it's hard to leave the store empty handed!

I'm a huge fan of this store - great labels, reasonable prices and fun vintage pieces. The staff is also super friendly. I know that if I walk in this store, I won't walk out empty handed. I'll have a great new addition to my wardrobe and I will have paid a great price. I highly recommend 1 of a find ~ anyone who loves vintage or one of a kind pieces should check this store out.

Brooklyn Gem!

1 of a Find is true to its name. The constantly rotating inventory is great. I have never left empty handed. My haul includes vintage chiffon blouses and silk ruffle shirts that are in pristine condition, Gucci handbags, LV travel bag, a great awning-stripe skirt and a necklace of interlocking gold circles that is amazing. Not to go unmentioned: cute store, friendly staff and there is NO stale vintage smell!

1 of a Find is true to its name. The racks and shelves are loaded with goodies - I have never left the shop empty handed. My haul includes unique vintage items like chiffon blouses and silk ruffle shirts that are in pristine condition to Gucci purses, LV travel bags, stripey summer skirts and a necklace of interlocking circles that is too beautiful to believe. Not to go unmentioned: NO stale vintage smell!
