Every piece is a treasure and trying on clothes is really fun here. Rare designers, more moderate prices than most NYC stores with a similar quality level. It’s as if peewee’s playhouse was totally stocked with Gaultier and Margiela. Contrary to popular belief nobody here is called James.
Coolest ever chill casual vibes here, a tiny space impeccably curated with vintage designer pieces that are cool and easy to wear. There’s a great selection of vintage sterling and gold jewelry, chic sunglasses, cool bags, thoughtful antique objects, and art. This store has a really cool feeling of being an upgrade from the everyday but everything is still practical, usable, and high quality: worth your money.
NYC’s one-stop-shop for vintage eyeglass frames, ranging from 19th-century antiques to wild 80s and 90s frames. Whatever you’re looking for there will be a tray of options.
I have to preface by saying I don’t do much shopping here because all the dealers bring their most special pieces and as a result, this isn’t a place to bargain hunt. But you’ll see incredible pieces and be introduced to a great set of vintage dealers from around the country.
I like all the L Train Vintage stores but their larger sister store is where I go if I need a certain type of thing or a specific color for a job. The prices are good, always something funny or utilitarian to meet whatever your needs are that day.
