Miss the days of stealing from your Mom’s closet? Well, look no further for that blissful nostalgia than the recently opened Antoinette— a vintage shop dedicated to the lost art of “borrowing” from your Mom. The shop is named after owner Lexi Oliveri’s Mother who’s personal stash fills the store–every single piece comes straight from her closet, “My mom worked in the fashion industry in the late 1950’s for the well known NYC based French milliner Lilly Dache & collected so many great finds from the chicest stores while working in the city in those days” states Oliveri on the shop’s site. And what a collection it is–with reasonably priced pieces that span decades and a plethora of accessories and shoes this shop more than deserves to be added to your Brooklyn vintage store favorites list if you have one of those and if you don’t, Antoinette is certainly reason to get one started.
119 Grand St (just past Berry St.) ; Store hours: Mon. -Sat. 11-7 & Sun. 12-6
