Hello from Deluxa!

As some of you may have noticed Go Fish on Sackett st closed in the Fall, however another vintage store, somewhat different, has opened: Deluxa.

Here is an excerpt of their press release:
Deluxa, a sweet vintage store tucked into a charming Carroll Gardens block, has just launched a new website at The site features Deluxa’s vintage fashion, furniture, and home goods, styled both editorially and in store.
Deluxa owner Kristen Stocks orchestrated the concept, look, and styling for the site, using a cast of friends to help with everything from modeling to photography to web design. Using her experiences from working at Martha Stewart and freelance styling, both the fashion and interiors shoots were produced entirely with Deluxa merchandise, demonstrating the loveliness, versatility, and uniqueness of a vintage lifestyle.
The site also features the small independent music section available in store, featuring local bands like Soundpool, Dead Leaf Echo, and Elika.
Specializing in late 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s vintage, the fashion selection includes clothing for him, her, and baby, along with accessories, shoes, and jewelry. The ever-changing furniture ranges from items like Eames chairs, Danish teak tables, Steelcase desks, and button tufted couches. Nostalgic home wares in the store incorporates items like glass Pyrex percolators to Lucite ice buckets to Fire King mixing bowls to Syrocco starburst clocks—in all providing a mini-department store of Midcentury Modern treasures.

From the website:
Deluxa opened in October of 2008, to share and promote a lifestyle of heritage, beauty, individuality, and sustainability. We love and adore things with pasts, things with life, and want to share these things with you to give them a future. We believe in our clothing, home wares, and furniture, that they will make you a more stylish, friendlier, and happier person.

We happily welcome Deluxa in our community and wish them the best!
