Ariane Ben Eli and Craig Judelman open this Western-inspired store, appealing to both vintage collectors and music lovers. You’ll find a mix of gently used clothing for both sexes ($3–$300), dating from the ’40s through modern day; unique jewelry ($8–$100); new country albums ($7–$15); rare records ($4–$30); and food, such as Texas toast ($3) and crepes ($6), from local Brooklyn vendors. Thanks to live music three to six nights a week (suggested donation $5), shoppers can enjoy up-and-coming local artists while picking up Western shirts ($25), washed denim jeans ($10–$25), plaid tops ($15) and Vuthy camo-pocket tanks ($35). Keep an eye out for community events, such as puppet-making workshops and poetry readings (most by suggested donation $5–$10).
