Vintage enthusiasts have another high-end spot for unique wares, thanks to this temporary shop from veteran dealers Katie McDonnell and David Brockman. The store is an expansion of McDonnell’s e-commerce site (nomadvintage.com) but a new venture for Brockman, who was a buyer for both now-closed East Village Honeymoon Vintage locations. The duo scoured the U.S., Europe and South America for one-of-a-kind finds and were even lucky enough to be invited into the homes of collectors to shop their private closets. The small, 250-square-foot space makes the most of its size with an eight-foot-tall glass case brimming with jewelry ($88–$225) and sunglasses ($125–$250), and an accent wall boasting an antique-looking mirror. Score standout pieces such as a 1970s Giorgio Sant’Angelo ribbon skirt ($385), a Michelle Lamy draped cotton top ($125) and a Kansai Yamamoto wool jacket with rubber-tire elbow patches ($995). Don’t miss the selection of Berlin-sourced leather handbags with brass hardware ($125–$295).
