Daughter, Lexi, named the store after her amazing mom who always encouraged her to open a vintage shop. Antoinette worked in the fashion industry in the late 1950′s for the well known NYC based French milliner Lilly Dache and collected so many great finds from the chicest stores while working in the city in those days.
