Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising grad Brittany Pham began her career as a clothing designer for her line Fremont, based in California. After accruing a vast collection of vintage pieces as inspiration, she decided to sell some styles at the monthly Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market. Eight years and countless bazaars later—including a permanent spot at the Brooklyn Flea—she’s unveiling this storefront devoted to her unique finds from the 1950s through ’90s. Each item of women’s ($18–$120) and men’s ($18–$120) garb is carefully selected to fit into Pham’s breezy West Coast aesthetic. Although there’s only one of each item, we recently spotted a flirty daisy-print jumper ($36), high-waist denim cutoffs ($32) and a Betsey Johnson floral maxidress ($42). The men’s selection is smaller but still strong, featuring a BD Baggies multicolor oxford shirt ($28) and ’90s-era Polo Ralph Lauren tees ($32). Scan the whitewashed-wood display tables for one-of-a-kind accessories ($8–$60), such as Indian wooden bangles ($12–$22 each) and midcentury silk scarves ($8).
