Olive's Very Vintage
A sunny Carroll Gardens shop, Olive's Very Vintage is worth the trip to Brooklyn's energetic Court Street. Customers will encounter designer pieces at not-too-steep prices, along with over-the-top collectors' items that could threaten to break the bank. Candy-colored pumps, buckets of patterned scarves and antique jewelry like cameo brooches and earrings complement the era-spanning garments that hang in the space. Designer items from Emilio Pucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Oscar de la Renta can be found alongside dresses, flapper gowns and hats straight out of the '70s.
