Manhattan – Chelsea
112 W 17th St between Sixth and Seventh Aves
Newly relocated to Chelsea from the East Village, this vintage jewelry resource is appropriately located adjacent to the 17th Street flea market. Like the original, the space is replete with worn oriental rugs, gorgeous antique cases and a trove of extremely affordable costume baubles (they have drawers packed with bits for $5). If you're willing to spend a little more, you can score undeniably beautiful pieces--carved cameos, onyx rings inset with diamonds--for around $100. There's a carriage house behind the space that offers a small trove of antique furniture, paintings and tchotchkes, with the same emphasis on affordability.
