Almost-open boutique/gallery End of Century has all the right ingredients for a Lower East Side shop: Clothing by independent designers, vintage decor you can buy straight from the sales floor, spiky and/or gothy accessories, an evocative but none-too-specific name. (Isn't this the beginning of the century?) Click through for a slideshow of things you can buy when the shop opens on Wednesday, and stop by 175 Rivington Street later in the week to see it all in person. [The Cut]
