No need to pay triple digits for preloved staples: This Greenpoint vintage boutique prices all of its colorful, playful pieces under a hundred bucks apiece. Owner Melissa Blumberg, who has a penchant for southwestern flair, sources most of the men’s and women’s wares from her home state of Florida. Summer frocks ($48–$68) the colors of daiquiris rub shoulders with denim work shirts ($25–$35) on clothing racks made from plumbing pipe. Pine floors are furnished with real cacti and a small display of quirky jewelry ($25–$70), sandals ($30–$48) and leather boots ($40–$88). With a one-in, one-out policy for merchandise, the store’s collection is literally replenished daily. We found a Chez Catherine blue printed dress with tapered sleeves ($85) and a junior-size Lord & Taylor Peter Pan–collar silk dress with a rose-and-polka–dot print ($52). For those enchanted by the Wild West, there is a wool-and-acrylic Mondi color-block sweater embroidered with horses ($58) and a Woolrich Southwestern flannel shirt ($44).
