During our trip last summer to New York City, we discovered one of the most inspiring retail spaces I have ever seen. Stock Vintage, located in the East Village, focuses on early 20th century men's wear. Owner Melissa Howard also collects home furnishings from the same era, and you'll see the mix as soon as you enter the shop's striking facade. In the windows, wooden airplane propellers are featured. Beside the front door, a cobbler's shoe form hints at the amazing collection of vintage shoes inside.
All you NVR readers know how much I enjoy repetition in design, so of course this collection of leather belts caught my eye.
If you find yourself in the East Village, make sure you stop by and take a peek.
