5 Places to Find Vintage-Furniture Gold in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Stuff We Love BY courtney conway 09/06/2019

 

It’s not clear exactly how or when Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood, Greenpoint, became a haven for all things vintage, from caftans to couches. But knowing the history isn’t key for you to appreciate the mecca for so many pre-loved things, especially mid-century furniture. It’s so thriving that there are too many spots to hit in a day—so we asked the very stylish local duo behind the jewelry line Lady Grey, Sabine Le Guyader and Jill Martinelli, to pare down the list. Here, Jill rattles off the best of the best.

 

PORTER JAMES

 

“Highly curated and packed with rare finds spanning decades, we would both be happy to own anything in this store.”

 

ADAPTATIONS NY

 

“Adaptations is the sister store of Porter James, and we love their mix of more nineties-era furniture and accessories with their new, non-vintage offerings.”

DREAM FISHING TACKLE

 

“Don't be fooled by the tackle shop–turned–vintage home store that's crammed to the brim and smells like cats—the lady that runs it knows her stuff. You'll get sucked in by their plentiful lucite and novelty selection but leave having spent way too much money on a super-rare designer piece that was stuffed in a corner.”

 

DOBBIN ST. VINTAGE CO-OP

 

“I pop in this place almost daily, and it's always full of new stuff. There’s a lot of turnover thanks to their super-reasonable prices. The best thing to do is follow their Instagram and snag stuff there because all the good stuff goes fast!”

 

BI-RITE STUDIO

 

“Eighties HEAVEN. Think lots of Heller dinnerware, tubular metal furniture, and bubble lamps.”
