Chelsea flea market and Antiques stores. (along 25th St)
the Antiques stores on 25th St (both east and west) are worth a visit. You can find lots of bakelite jewellery and vintage designer clothing.
Great vibe at Chelsea Flea Market, on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm, lively and eclectic, it offers good pieces of vintage furniture and clothing. Expect to find Ferragamo coats and 1960's Chanel suits (prices...well you can imagine...)
If you come out the opposite side of the market, on 24th, you can find a hidden gem. RonnieScot is a little vintage warehouse selling great old military clothing and many great pieces from 50's, 60's and 70's. Prices are reasonable and if you buy more than one item they'll give you a discount.

From Nolita find your way towards Lower East Side via Rivington street there are some nice shops like Cutie Room which has some good picks from indie designers from NY, LA and Tokyo.
Lower East Side is my favourite area to shop. The best emerging designers are collected in the numerous boutiques around Ludlow street.
Greatest shop ever? Between Orchard and Ludlow on 100 Stanton St there is the amazing Pixie Market. Jeffrey Campbell, B Store, Carin Wester, Best Behaviour, BACK by Ann Sophie Back to name a few. Browse their website to fall in love: http://www.pixiemarket.com/store/
