Co-owner Anna Pulvermakher launched her six-year-old boutique in the East Village in 2004, and then moved it a year later to a more spacious location in Dumbo. In May 2010, she settled into a Soho outpost, which she believes is Loopy Mango's perfect perfect home. “We can get more foot traffic in Soho since it’s a bigger shopping destination,” she explains. “And we’ll attract more stylish customers who really want items that are different.” With a warm color palette, distressed wood walls, natural-finished flooring and old-world decor, the 1,800-square-foot space provides a cozy setting for browsing the well-balanced collection of designer goods, including clothing, shoes, lingerie, handbags, accessories and gifts. The store also carries worn antique furniture and vintage duds. Lucky fashionistas who are not on a budget can flaunt handmade leather and carved wood Calleen Cordero heels ($575), chic Bensoni sheath dresses ($575) and one-of-a-kind necklaces handcrafted by co-owner Waejong Kim (starting at $200). And style-conscious guys can rock seamless Amoskeag XX jeans ($498) and refurbished cowboy boots ($98).
