It’s not unusual to see this shop’s eccentric offerings spilling onto the sidewalk out front: creepy doll parts, antique flasks, tooled leather handbags and platform clogs—even a pram heaped with astronaut ice cream. Inside, owner Nadia Tarr’s versatile Butter by Nadia dresses are displayed on vintage Garment District hangers, and a wall of yanked-ajar wooden drawers houses old-fashioned candy (Abba-Zaba, Chase’s Cherry Mash), plus Brooklyn-made Saipua soaps and D.S. & Durga perfumes. A rack showcases a rotating crop of vintage dresses, but Tarr is forever on the hunt for unique menswear, including dead-stock army parkas and anything Pendelton or Woolrich.
