Executive director Sandra Bendor opened this vintage store and gallery space after years of collecting clothes from around the globe. As a self-proclaimed “fabric snob,” Bendor sources her preloved garb all over the country, picking only high-quality, gently used pieces that feel as good as they look. Slide into a satin ikat-printed long-sleeved dress ($36), an ultrasuede Halston shirt-dress ($198) or Max & Co. tapered pants ($118). Then admire Nicaraguan artist Gerardo Latino’s framed, intricate paper sculptures ($1,000–$4,500) and Bendor’s modern quilts ($4,000–$12,000) lining the white walls. Your jaw will drop when you see the home and accessories selection, including a vintage midcentury lamp ($180) and Bendor’s buttery leather cross-body bags ($58). An open area in the back of the store will be used as a creative community center for women’s writing groups and double as a temporary studio for up-and-coming designers to sell their collections.
