Time Out Says

Those who grew up watching Saved by the Bell and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will find a cure for their ’90s nostalgia at this East Village shop, specializing in men’s and women’s vintage clothing, footwear and assorted tchotchkes. Owner Michael Spitz has a background selling at flea markets around the city, and was inspired by childhood basketball cards, Ninja Turtles and Michael Jordan memorabilia for his first store. Sort through racks of colorful vintage gear to find treasures such as men’s starter jackets ($50–$200), Levi’s acid-wash jean jackets ($65), Gucci basic pumps ($180) and unisex Pendleton flannels ($50–$60). Nab vintage tees (two for $30) while viewing clips of old movies on a small monitor positioned at the front of the store. There, you’ll also find ’80s action figures ($8–$20) and a deck of Yo! MTV Raps collector cards ($3). Stop by on the first Thursday of every month for “Throwback Thursdays” and get 10 percent off everything in the store.
