LOVIN’ IT. And by “it” I mean all the wonderful recycling, reusing and re-purposing going on here. This cute little East Williamsburg store sells mostly vintage furniture, home goods and wonderful little doo dads—a lot of which are made from vintage and antique elements. You know, jewelry made from brothel tokens and skeleton keys, old lamps given a new look with vintage books—that kind of wonderful. There always appears to be a new refurbishing, refinishing, recycling or re-beautifying project going on in the store space. And for that, I love it.

VINTAGEY THRIFT… OR THRIFTY VINTAGE? Either way, I like it! This Greenpoint spot is one of those “buy, sell, trade” stores, but it doesn’t feel the same as the others. I’ve perused many a store under the same category and decided against blogging about them—to spare you the experience of walking into a store that looks vintagey awesome from the outside, only to find racks full of ill-fitting blouses from 2002 inside. Fox & Fawn has its share of awkward, less desirable duds, but it has some great vintage pieces as well—and at prices that absolutely cannot be beat! (Why did I not buy everything in this video!?) Because Fox & Fawn is more like a thrift store where it’s all about the search, I decided to show you specific items that I found, instead of highlighting typical genres of items from the store like I usually do. I even ended up buying a skirt for about $12! It’s contemporary, but vintage in its design… you could say it’s vintagey thrift!
