Best Consignment Shops in The East Village03/12/2015
333 E 9th St, New York, NY 10003 btwn 2nd and 1st aves
My favorite consignment shop is aptly named after the owners’ dog Cadillac. The beautiful gentle soul was a fixture in the store (and a dear friend of my baby girl Bella June) until his last days. He now watches over the shop with a thoughtful gaze from the wall above where his bejeweled collar hangs in memoriam. To this day, I cannot walk on 9th street without Bella protesting to pay a visit to her favorite store (the owners and stylists always give her cookies and kisses). You won’t be able to walk by either, because there is a $25 rack outside the door (weather permitting) on which I’ve obtained a silk Diane Von Furstenberg dress, and the most insane sample Custo Barcelona coat to keep it short. If that doesn’t do it for you, they also have a $5 bin in the back right corner of the shop that’s sure to make you swoon.
