NEW YORK, New York - New York is our home town and it was difficult to single out our favorite places to shop in a city that is filled with a magnitude of shopping experiences. We tried to bring you the best of uptown, downtown, and Brooklyn and only shout out to stores that are exclusive to NYC. The best advice we have for shopping in NYC is just go for it. Anywhere you will wander you will probably find something you love and just have to buy.
This vintage paradise brings a little bit of Portobello Road to NYC with it’s eclectic assortment of stylish wares - from vintage ribbons to flapper dresses and boho fabrics and accessories all curated by Lorraine Kirke, mother of actresses Jemima and Lola Kirke.
