Erie Basin

Russell Whitmore's gallery/boutique holds all the gorgeous treasures he turns up from tirelessly shopping East Coast estate sales. It's a stunning and well-priced array of jewelry—thanks to his eye for the curious and unusual, there's really nothing else like it—which makes Erie Basin a major destination, despite its location in far-flung Red Hook. Victorian memento mori rings and necklaces made from discarded filigree watch bits are standouts. 388 Van Brunt St. RED HOOK 718-554-6147, eriebasin.com

Chelsea Girl Couture

Loved by celebs, Chelsea Girl is a great resource for offbeat vintage clothing; expect garments from heavy hitters like Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci sprinkled into the mix.
186 Spring St. (between Sullivan and Thompson Sts.), 212-343-7090, chelsea-girl.com

No. 6

Morgan Yakus used to sell vintage clothing at London's Portobello Road flea market before she and stylist Karin Bereson decided to open their own shop. Occupying a former firearms store, this living-room-like space offers a trove of hand-selected '70s and '80s pieces, along with a house collection of bohemian dresses (which often sells out at Barneys Co-op) and other small labels, like Stine Goya and Anntian. 6 Centre Market Pl. Little Italy 212-226-5759, no6store.com

Pippin Vintage Jewelry

Newly relocated to a roomier Chelsea space, this is our favorite spot in the city for affordable costume jewels (there are even drawers of $5 and $10 pieces).
112 W. 17th St. (between Sixth and Seventh Aves.), 212-505-5159, pippinvintage.com
