East Village
Manhattan gets a taste of countryside charm now that this upstate store has opened a Big Apple space offering quirky, beautiful vintage decor and accessories. Entering the homey spot is like walking into a curiosities shop: Items are displayed in eye-pleasing vignettes, a colorful aesthetic compliments the merchandise, and the walls are spruced up with old book pages used as wallpaper. Find well-curated art pieces, such as framed 19th-century hand-colored natural-history prints ($250), vintage snapshots of the male physique by amateur photographers ($225) and 19th-century–style still-life oil paintings by Luke Dougherty ($2,000). The collectibles are just as interesting, like production and costume designer Andy Byers’s insect and paper animal sculptures ($1,500–$3,000), originally made for a short-film series about the mating habits of bugs called Green Porno. There are lovely affordable items too, including decorative exotic seashells ($8) and muted jewel-toned handmade beeswax candles ($20–$40).
