Shopping in NYC.

Williamsburg - Brooklyn.

Bedford Avenue.

the New Blackbird Parlour...

I recommend a stop at this lovely cafe', nice ice-latte and yummy french toast! the 'Elvis crepe' sounded amazing: Peanut butter and Hershey's Chocolate syrup...with a banana or jelly topping available...

 Lovely PinkYotto - 204 Bedford Ave (between 5th St & 6th St)
 I loved this store, average price $ 100- $150. My favourite item was a silk bird print shirt in coral or mint. Not sure why I left it there...

Red Pearl - 200 Bedford Avenue
How cute!?
MiniMarket - 218 Bedford Avenue

This shop is a real surprise. Best finds in here: Esther Williams bathing suits, retro Bass shoes (love the heart detail mocassins and the classic saddle shoes!), Chelsea crew footwear (if you don't want to spend all those money for Chie Mihara..),  bunny and owl trimmed golden rings, Timex watches, Lolita heart shaped sunglasses...

Amarcord - 223 Bedford Avenue
Amarcord inside
Amarcord shop assistant. Loved her Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes (I actually want a pair now..)
A few steps down from MiniMarket there is Amarcord which is definitely worth a stop! Nice selection of Vintage.

Lavai Maria - 132 N 5th St

Adventure yourself in the side streets of Bedford Av., it's worth seeing the interesting architecture of Williamsburg and you'll certainly discover some amazing bars, retaurants and shops!

In Lavai Maria there are some interesting vintage clothes, shoes and accessories..also handmade clothes made from old vintage fabrics. Check their blog

Moon River Chattel
Moon River Chattel - 62 Grand Street

If you're passionate for home accessories Moon River Chattel is the place!  On Grand Street this store offers country and retro style for indoor and outdoor living space. I fell in love with their own branded fragranced candles.

Williamsburg bridge
Brooklyn denim company
Brooklyn denim company - 85 N 3rd St. #101
 If you need some denim therapy visit this store...but be aware their jeans and clothes are fantastic but very pricey!

Flake Vintage Clothing - great designer vintage.
American Apparel (a bit cheaper for us Europeans..)

Jumelle - 148 Bedford Avenue

Back on Bedford Avenue for the designers' lovers there's Jumelle. Great picks from the brands of the moment like APC, Swedish Hasbeens, Isabel Marant, Anntian, A Detacher, No. 6. Visit their website and you'll love this store!

Sir - 129 Bedford Avenue

Beacon's closet
Beacon's closet - 88 n 11th street
If you have a lot of time this is the right place for vintage bargains. Infinite round rails arranged by colour and item. It is a bit like Beyond Retro in London/Stockholm but with a brooklyn coolness addition.
