A lower east side staple for over 10 years, Marmalade Vintage is now the best kept secret below Kenmare Street. Nestled between Little Italy and Chinatown, it is close enough to Soho and Nolita shopping, but less crowded and full of beautiful treasures. They carry labels like Norma Kamali, Hanea Mori, Gucci, Zandra Rhodes, Thierry Mugler to name a few, as well as one of a kind, handmade frocks, tooled leather bags, gorgeous vintage jewelry (including rare signed pieces), to a shoe collection one dreams about! And they are always putting new pieces on the floor! Marmalade is the go to spot for a unique ensemble that no one else will be donning, but you. The prices are already reasonable and then they have a killer sale rack to boot! I am hooked.
I for one am grateful...

someone else is willing to do the digging and present the best vintage treasures, clean and in good repair. When I want vintage boots or a dress nobody else has, I want hand-picked possibilities in plenty of sizes. I want purses big enough for all the gear I lug around this city. I want high concept design pieces in excellent condition...and Marmalade provides. I think of the style as rock and roll, chic and sleek, feline vintage clothes for bad-ass but feminine women. I always find something mind-blowing and undeniable and I keep going back for more.
Inspired & Inspiring!

Marmalade is one of my favorite shops in the city. I always find something to love that I didn¬ít necessarily know I needed but now can¬ít live without. An inspired collection of vintage clothing and accessories, friendly and helpful shopgirls, and good music on the stereo make for an amazing shopping experience. Whenever I wear something I bought there, strangers ask me where I got it -- expect compliments!
