Peek Inside Greenpoint's Newest Vintage Shopping Destination

Those who know a thing or two about vintage shopping have likely discovered Maeven, the website run by Brooklyn-based Amy Yee. While she's previously taken her offerings out to the public at markets like the Brooklyn Flea and noted vintage shows like A Current Affair, customers haven't had a dedicated venue to check out the shoes, apparel, and bags in person — until now.

This past weekend marked the debut of the Maeven pop-up shop at 170 Franklin Street in Greenpoint, just a couple blocks from Yee's studio and storage site in the Pencil Factory. That means she can easily swap merchandise in and out; currently, what's on the racks is mostly from the 1950s and later, not including the Chanel and Louis Vuitton bags sitting on the highest shelves

Check out the gallery above for an idea of what you can find (the merchandise here isn't online), and be sure to stop by before the pop-up's run wraps up at the end of the month.
