“But I have to say the prices are better at my new favorite shop: Pilgrim on Orchar.”
Vintage treasures... Knowledgeable staff!!.
This is by far my favorite spot to shop for vintage!! I have found the staff at Marmalade to be very friendly, not to mention super knowledgeable about vintage clothing, the designers and the trends. Anytime I have been in looking for something specific the salesgirl always leads me to the right piece... and the best part, they keep a lot of stock in the back and they seem to know each and every piece they have, so if they don't have what you want on the floor, they know where to find it. But, I have NEVER had a problem finding something I MUST have as soon as I walk in the door. The store's Mott St. and Broome St. corner location is perfectly situated between my favorite shopping neighborhoods of Soho and Nolita.
I go in once a week, and there is always something new to browse through. Oh, and shoes... they have SO MANY GORGEOUS PAIRS OF SHOES!!!!
Unfriendly staff. My husband and I dropped into this well-reviewed store on a Sunday and contrary to the reviews I've read, the shop assistant basically looked like she needed a fly-swatter, she couldn't get rid of us sooner. Not a hi or hello, just get out. Now. And this was a good three hours before closing. For this reason, I would not recommend this place to friends and colleagues.
A large, colorful vintage-shopping destination packed with powerful statement pieces..
This is the place where fashion designers, stylists and other fashion insiders go for inspiration, creaking wood floors and all. The large studio is painted in "Romper Room"-era hues of purple, blue and red and carries a wide selection of retro fixes in daring (a cream trench with an embroidered tiger head) and subtle (a Liz Claiborne silk librarian blouse). If you're unsure how to wear something, take a glance at the staff, who are appropriately decked out in styles that conjure the 70s.
on the pulse of the moment in fashion. Inspired Vintage Collection in all price ranges.. Marmalade always seems to have their finger on the pulse of the moment in fashion. It offers a definite point of view, and offers vintage in all price ranges. On a given day you can find a rare Zandra Rhodes top, a Mad Max-era suede tunic, and an affordable pair of 80's Boots. The owner Hannah Kurland also features her own progressive line of vintage-inspired wearables. Like most everything at Marmalade, it's girly with an edge. Marmalade is cool without being pretentious. You'll feel like you are in on a secret!
