Although this new shop has the air of a gallery (white walls, vitrines), there’s certainly no need for whispering and owner Andrea Miller encourages touching. Filled with an eclectic mix of new and vintage clothing (Alternative Apparel sweatshirts mingle with white lace frocks from the turn of the century), Miller doesn’t adhere to one credo or design philosophy. Instead she takes a populist approach to curating her store, evidenced by her recent front-window display: President Obama’s head dangled from quirky earrings, a cherry red ’80s phone in the shape of lips sat awaiting a call, and a gorgeous vintage dress made the mannequin come alive. The best part is that everything—even the photography, art and interesting tchotchkes for sale—is priced on the inexpensive side.
