Way back in the old days we used to have to go all the way to Williamsburg to get our proper vintage clothing fix. And when I say way back in the old days, I actually mean five months ago because that’s about when it all started to happen in Bushwick. Classic (yet lonesome) Bushwick vintage stores (Friends Vintage and Urban Jungle, among others) were joined by four younger siblings. And when I say younger, I mean, ehm, vintage…Well, let’s take a look at them shall we?
