Dancer turned designer Nadia Tarr is best known for her collection of versatile wrap dresses, Butter by Nadia, but her Carroll Gardens store forgoes high-end fashion for vintage kitsch. The small, fragrant space resembles a grandmother’s tchotchke cabinet, with clothing, housewares, and curiosities piled on tables, stashed in drawers, hanging from the ceiling, and packed into stacked shelves resembling bread boxes. Recent finds include a Depression-era leather travel bag, antique salt-and-pepper shakers, a mechanical pencil sharpener, sixties-era cocktail dresses, and a lurid romance novel from the fifties. Visitors are encouraged to rifle through drawers, which are filled with hidden treats like old-timey candy, buttons, and colorful soaps. Brand new giftable items are also included in the mix, like scented soy candles from Saipua.
