Wave of the Future: People of 2morrow (New Shop)

Darlings, there’s a new thrift store in town and it’s totally glorious. People of 2morrow (65 Franklin St) is a perfect blend of whimsical vintage and mindfully curated products. Walking through the bright, open and airy space, you’ll find womens and mens wear, jewelry fit for minimalist lovers and wood nymphs, sweet home goods, and twee gifts for tots.

I spied a creamy white Escada sweater for under forty bucks and an adorable vintage kids jumper from the 1940s. The store also sports a weekly pop-up shop to feature local designers, keep an eye out for intricate jewelry, candles and apothecary, and housewares.

Announcing the 2013 Vintage Crawl! (11/2)

This Saturday (11/2) will mark the 4th year that the Vintage Crawl has blessed us with a mapped route of shopping bliss, complete with sweets deals, cocktails, and seasonal sweaters galore. And this year, it’s expanded to the uncharted land of Bushwick.

Shoppers can navigate with a self-led interactive map on their smart phones (flip phone Philistines can rely on an old-timey paper map).  The crawl encompasses over 25 vintage stores and 10 bars across North Brooklyn, culminating in an after-party at Brooklyn Bowl, featuring Brooklyn-via-Detroit songstress, Alex Winston, synth pop greats, Joywave, and local fav, Deidre & The Dark.

After-party tickets are available here. Bring them to the crawl for even more discounts that will make your bargain-hunting thrift queen give your inner cheap-o a hearty pat on the back.

Here (drum roll) are the participating stores:

Greenpoint: Seven Wonders Vintage | Fox & Fawn | Ana Chronos | Kill Devil Hill | BKLYN Curated | Mahps Vintage | Adaptations

Williamsburg: Malin Landaeus | Horizons | Antoinette | RePop | Le Grand Strip | About Glamour | Awoke Vintage | Brooklyn Reclamation | Rabbits | Treehouse | Lavai Maria | Artists & Fleas [select booths] | C&C Pop up Truck

Bushwick: Collections | Worship | Fox and Fawn | Friends Vintage | Nouveau Vieux | Chess and the Sphinx

And..the bars: The Three Diamond Door | Dear Bushwick | High Horse Saloon | Commodore | Soft Spot | Duke’s Liquor Box | Skinny Dennis | The Gibson | Sage | Park Luncheonette

There will also be a Vintage Truck–the C&C Pop-Up mobile (from the A&E show, Storage Wars NY) will be stationed along McCarren Park in Williamsburg, selling various vintage knickknacks, clothing, and home goods.

Here is a little taste of some of the steals n’ deals going down:

Champagne and 20% off at Ana Chronos

$10-20 Rack and Endless Summer Taco Truck at Antoinette

2 for 1 sale rack at Fox and Fawn

 

 

Mimosas all day at Nouveau Vieux

25% off vintage at Treehouse

Look for us there. We’ll be the ones buying way too many Fall boots (while delicately sipping mimosas).
