Olaf Men’s Vintage (453 Court Street, Carroll Gardens, 347-457-5796)
Because sometimes you’d rather not have a poufy prom dress getting between you and a pair of gentlemanly tweed slacks.
Collecther (306 Franklin Avenue, Bed-Stuy, 347-658-7857)
This Bed-Stuy shop regularly holds $25 Dress Sundays, offering up racks of cute frocks for a pittance.
Fox & Fawn (570 Manhattan Avenue, Greenpoint, 718-349-9510)
It’s a buy-sell-trade store without the creepy glasses-wearing baby.
Malin Landaeus (157 North 6th Street, Williamsburg, 646-361-0261)
There’s a right way and a wrong way to update a vintage item. The hand-dyed pieces at Malin Landeaus are one big right.
10 Ft. Single by Stella Dallas (285 North 6th Street, Williamsburg, 718-486-9482)
This jam-packed space by the BQE feels just curated enough that you don’t have to sift through racks for very long before finding a must-have piece (most coming in under $30). And if you don’t? Try your luck next-door at their housewares store.
The Grand Street Bakery (602 Grand Street, Williamsburg, 718-387-2930)
The selection here is great—but what makes this spot even more special is that it also hosts live shows, food markets, and other events.
Eva Gentry Consignment (371 Atlantic Avenue, Boerum Hill, 718-522-3522)
This sleek space is a label-hunter’s dream: Balenciaga, Lanvin, Givenchy, Narciso Rodriguez, Prada, Marni….
Amarcord Vintage (223 Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, 718-963-4001)
This long-time Williamsburg spot has lots of the same labels you’d see at Eva Gentry Consignment, only from a few decades earlier.
Hooti Couture (321 Flatbush Avenue, Prospect Heights, 718-857-1977)
What would vintage shopping be without an opinionated owner helping you play dress-up? Model-turned-store owner-turned writer Alison Houtte fits the bill.
Antoinette (119 Grand Street, Williamsburg, 718-387-8664)
This sweet little shop is named after not the French figure, but the owner’s mother, whose vast collection of mid-century clothing lines Antoinette’s racks. One person’s hoarder is another person’s good Samaritan.
