the burg

Post image for the burg

last week i told you all about the trip fp jemma and i took to NYC for the day to visit some of our stores. well we had a small window of free time before our train back to philly so we hit williamsburg in brooklyn for a quick shopping session at stella dallas. this was my first time visiting the vintage store and i could have spent all day browsing the racks and rummaging through boxes in search of antique treasures. i love the smell of vintage stores…like your grandparents attic mixed with an old library of yellowed, crackling books. you always know you’re going to find something special and what that find will be is the mystery.

here are some photos from our shopping excursion…

what was my big find? i was absolutely smitten with the vintage rock tees hanging all over the store- so it broke my heart a little when i saw the sign saying they were part of the owner’s private collection and not for sale…. until I found a rack in the back with a sweet pink floyd t-shirt that i grabbed and would not let go of!

here’s another tip – follow up a day of vintage shopping with food and drinks at blackbird – a charming little corner spot on bedford ave that i would love to spend hours in, reading a book and people watching.  it’s got a great atmosphere with wooden shelves lined with books and an old wooden bar full of character.

NO WAY Julia! Sophie and I went here last month and I was on a SERIOUS hunt for an amazing vintage rock tee also! I wanted the GnR one that was hanging but was also bummed when I saw the ‘red tag’- meaning: not for sale. I cannot believe you got that Floyd Tee!!!! Please don’t wear it to work and taunt me with it :( sniff

I will definitely take these recommendations to heart when my sister and I reach NYC! We’ve spent a lot of time exploring Manhattan in the past, and are eager to find some Brooklyn treasures.
