Get touched by a (vintage) angel. – The Scene
Can't deal with the flea market? Head to East 9th Street for its mix of reasonably priced vintage stores, all run by folks a little kinder than the ones you'll find on 26th Street--and still willing to bargain, to boot. Archangel Antiques, two stores side-by-side packed with several desirables, is one stop that's a must.
A few racks of clothing are populated with pieces from the '50s or '60s, but Archangel's real trade is in accessories. Peruse trays and trays of eyewear, from rhinestone-adorned cat-eyes to Lennon-esque wire frames, as well as charms, cufflinks, costume jewelry, even tiaras. (Complete the set with a mini-tiara to pin on your lapel.) There's a good bit of smoking paraphernalia--pipes, lighters and cigarette cases--plus owners willing to give you a history lesson. Also look for bigger items like steel desk chairs and end tables. Neo-Luddites will appreciate the typewriters that are often for sale.
