Get Ready To Swoon: Mind / Matter Is A Vintage Dream

IMG_7367
The great thing about Greenpoint is that there isn’t a shortage of vintage shops to hunt in. And, many of the owners are smart, sweet, and sassy. I can say the same thing for the store, Mind / Matter (165  Greenpoint Ave) is a vintage lover’s dream. More so, the owner, Elle Ditta, is charming and knowledgable.

I recently sat down with Elle to discuss her new store and why it’s a perfect sanctuary for all vintage enthusiasts. (Hint: oh-so-sweet clothes, beauty, and retro furniture).

I love style and shopping as much as the next person, but sometimes it can feel frivolous to only write about new things to purchase. I’m happy to discover that Buffalo Exchange uses fashion to raise animal awareness. In April, the thrift store raised over $49,000 to benefit The Fun For Animals. Animal rights and welfare is a cause that’s dear to my heart, so I’m excited to look into a family operated company that also has a location in North Brooklyn.

Sad Trombone: The One Well to Close in June + Closing Party

IMG_6921

It’s with a sad heart that I report The One Well is closing on June 14th. The sprightly little shop on Greenpoint Avenue sells ceramics, housewares, candles, vintage finds, handbags, original art, and even treats like honey and chocolate.

It’s always a bummer to see a local business shutter, though this has a silver lining. Kerry Jones, owner of The One Well, is relocating to Atlanta to pursue new adventures. The website will still be in business, so you can keep on loving the shop!

Read more for an interview with the lovely Kerry and information on the closing party later in June. Continue reading
