A few weeks ago the Williamsburg location of Awoke Vintage (132 N 5th Street) suffered a devastating fire in the middle of the night around 3am. The cause is undetermined, but the owners say it’s possible that it was electrical. The shop unfortunately lost almost everything, and insurance only covered about 1/8 of their losses. Thankfully, no one was hurt, and they were able to direct regulars to their Greenpoint store.
This weekend, like a phoenix rising, the Williamsburg location is re-opening. Drop in to either location to say hello and get some badass vintage finds!
