Newlyweds Mike Hewitt and Marietta Alonzo Hewitt are behind this charming Greenpoint vintage shop. The bright space is arranged to recall a woman’s bedroom (hence the name, which means “little room” in French), complete with an aqua antique bed that displays clothing. Expect to find preloved duds by names like Ralph Lauren, Givenchy and Emilio Pucci, along with lower-priced labels from the ’60s and ’70s. On a recent visit we found a Scottish cashmere sweater from the ’70s ($67) and a Christian Dior safari-printed skirt ($85). Bonus: Alterations on vintage wares are free. The Hewitts also offer accessories, including Yamilla one-of-a-kind necklaces made from clock and watch parts ($56–$90).
