Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Lodged between an optical store and a children’s boutique, this unassuming vintage shop has no awning and no sign in the window—only piles of handbags and jewelry. Once you step inside and look past the racks of clothes, you may find yourself drawn to the wall of purses that hang behind owner Marc Pine’s counter. Local women frequent this 35-year-old store to bring in old and new Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci and Prada bags for Pine to inspect, authenticate and sell. Prices for the designer arm candy can range anywhere from $100 for Coach and Dooney & Bourke satchels to more than $3,000 for Chanel. Vuitton luggage pieces ($850) are also available. In addition to bags, Pine has collected about 50,000 examples of costume jewelry, starting at $10 for earrings and going up to $30,000 for vintage gold and diamond items.
