"Great ideas for new and interesting ways to dress with a bohemian slant. We loved it so much, we filled our rental car and had to buy American Apparel duffles to get it all home!"

"Han Vu has a great eye for wearable design. He specializes in '70s, '80s and '90s pieces, but you can find stylish items from every decade here. We also love that Han has a group of young girls as customers who collect vintage Trina Turk! You can also find embellished and restyled vintage pieces re-designed by Han himself."

"I found a great pair of Roberta di Camerino oversized square sunglasses here—they’re pale camel on the outside and deep brown on the inside. A reversible Bonnie Cashin red/grey coat was another great find at Amarcord. They show at the Manhattan Vintage show, too."
