Super Real Much

Located just a couple of blocks from McCarren Park is the cool Williamsburg vintage shop Super Real Much. This little vintage store in Williamsburg packs a huge punch with an amazing collection of women’s vintage clothing, accessories, and select home goods.

In addition to their curated vintage pieces, they have fun gifts, candles, jewelry, hip stationery, and some new clothing pieces.

Super Real Much is a great place to browse for unique and reasonably-priced clothing and gifts – plus you can shop online!

10 ft. Single & Stella Dallas Living


Situated right by the Brooklyn Queens Expressway is 10ft Single by Stella Dallas Living and Stella Dallas Living, probably one of the most well known Williamsburg vintage shops. These shops are filled to the gills with incredible vintage clothing and accessories and their window displays are always top-notch and stop me in my tracks.

At 10ft. Single you can find an overwhelmingly amazing selection of vintage finds! Sift through the packed racks at 10ft Single and you’ll be sure to find a unique vintage piece that is perfect for you!

Stella Dallas Living has higher-end clothing and what feels like ‘period pieces’ but also antique homeware and cool finds like vintage blankets.

Both of these vintage shops in Williamsburg are next to eachother, so stop by both!
