While dropping by the Tenth Annual New York City International Pickle Day in the Lower East Side yesterday, we didn't happen upon that many pickles (oddly enough) but we did stumble upon the newly relocated TG170. The shop, originally located up Ludlow near Stanton, opened about two weeks ago right on the corner of Ludlow and Broome. We walked in at the same time as a couple loyal customers who dropped by to say hi to owner Terri Gillis.
The new cozy corner location suits the LES boutique nicely. On the same Broome Street block as Miss Lonelyhearts, Babycakes and The Ten Bells, this shop has more of a neighborhood feel than it would in the Lower East Packing District area above Delancey.
Terri brought over the familiar large paillette hanging lamps but put in new floors and dressing rooms adorned with cheeky skulls and crossbones. The shelves are full of carefully curated fall collections from the likes of Tucker, Srtetis, Surface to Air, Sass & Bide, Feral Childe, and Lauren Moffat. A few sale items made it over, too, and are located on the back left rack. Another pleasant surprise that made it over: Marmalade Vintage's small collection of shoes and boots. We loved a pair of metallic oxfords and also slouchy denim studded boots.
Terri has a few last minute changes to make: a new display case/cash register desk, a new display table for the middle of the shop, plus construction of the actual signage. We think that the small hand-painted wooden sign and the the old M&L Graphics signage look kind of cute, but TG170 is looking forward to fully staking its claim on the new digs.
