Yesterday, we got word that Erica Weiner plans to open her first Brooklyn store, and her second in NYC, at 360 Atlantic Avenue next month. As one of our commenters quickly pointed out, the storefront used to be home to Mafalda—which became a member of our list of the city's best vintage stores this past November.
We wrote to store owner Christina Kolbe to find out what's up. She explained: "Right now, I am focusing on private appointments, e-commerce and pop-up evenings. If I come across an amazing retail space, I would certainly consider relocating the physical space." She adds that you can keep in touch by contacting her here, and writes that her first venture is a collaboration with Evan Ross from Frock NYC, on an online market place called Dezine.
