Into Bed-Stuy: collecther

A friend of mine in search of good vintage finds heard about a unique shop just over the CH border called collecther. So, we scoped it out. collecther, franklin ave

Located on Franklin at Lafayette, the shop is set up like a high-end boutique. Vintage purses are displayed in an ornate curio cabinet while chill music plays on an ipod stereo. It's a chi-chi feel for an affordable price, and a real find on a formerly blighted block. Franklin might shape up to be the next cool corridor. Plus, it's great to see local residents as entrepreneurs enhancing the neighborhood.
