Vintage Shopping Adventures

Vintage Shopping Adventures
May 25, 2016

CoverNY, our tour organization sent out the itinerary for the appointments before we set off to New York.  They also sent out many lists of suggested activities, fabric stores, shops, restaurants, and even some helpful tips for navigating the city.  The list that immediately caught my eye was the one labeled Vintage Shopping.  In my excitement a couple of days before we left, I researched most of the stores on the list to find the perfect one to visit.  Its name was Hamlet's Vintage.

We set out to find the shop immediately after our last appointment of the day.  After a quick subway ride, we were within a couple blocks.  The store was fantastic, filled with great finds at many price points.  We all tried on great pieces, and had fun searching the racks for beautiful finds like Dior.  A few of us even bought our outfits! We spent quite awhile looking around, but the owner was friendly and didn't mind at all.  He even had a cute little dog in the shop.

After we made our purchases, I realized how close we were to Washington Square Park.  Since we had been inside too much for a day with such perfect weather, we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing in the park. It was a successful adventure!
