Billy’s Antiques & Props!

My friend Ingrid always speaks of an awesome thrifty spot in the city called “Billy’s Antiques”. I have actually been there before but the name seemed to have slipped my mind, however, the treasure I saw there was pretty memorable. This time was no exception. Ingrid and I met up in the lower east side at her friend Ben’s organic shop and then headed to Billy’s to drop by and check out the goods. It was the perfect day for an antique shop visit. I was dressed in 1920s fashion inspired by Hedy Lamarr. I wore my short curly wig and a turban, it was refreshing to change my look. I was drenched in vintage and I finally wore my Tecasan booties! Our day was great, we met some wonderful people, saw some great treasures, found a pair of beautiful vintage earrings, and a really cool vintage table from the 1950s! Check it out inside!
