Rad store #2
Poppet in NYC, this place was my jam when I was living there, I remember passing by the window on 10th street one night with my Betsey gal pal, Brooke thinking I have just found the holy grail of all Vintage stores!!! The next day I hightailed it to the store to find Billie Madley, one of the gorgeous masterminds behind the creation. It was such a warm and welcoming place, and though my pocketbook would only allow a few of the fantastic items, I made friends with the gals and would spend hours showing them my thrift finds and oohing and awwwing over the clothes!!!!!!! Betsey Johnson actually borrowed a lot of pieces from them for inspiration for her collections...One piece in particular I got to see from the display to the actual production, it was a print that was reproduced...soooo cool!!!
the doors are closed but they are still keeping Poppet alive, you can shop the collection by appointment only if you visit
