When Mollie Dash’s boyfriend urged her to expand her line of handcrafted, reworked vintage jewelry (formerly available only at Greenpoint boutique Old Hollywood’s website), the Brooklyn artist procured a hodgepodge of antique and indie accessories, apparel and knickknacks to fill an airy boutique. Dash describes the decor as an expression of the duo’s “collective design fetishes,” including quirky materials such as pegboards, Styrofoam and duck sauce packets. We’re itching to test our green thumbs by snagging Truss Planters ($48), mini replicas of cement buildings that serve as flower pots. We also wouldn’t mind accessorizing our apartments with conversation-starting accoutrements such as magnets shaped like ninja weapons ($10–$18). And on the apparel front, Queens’ finest can rep their borough with a canary-hued astoria olympic team tee ($14) and Paste T-shirts cleverly screen-printed with a photo of a T-shirt ($34)—how meta!
