Apologies, dear readers, this one passed us by weeks ago, but better late than never we hope. Known for her vintage haven Downtown, Shareen Vintage has opened an Abbot Kinney outpost behind Ecookie boutique. From WWD: "Twelve racks of carefully edited picks pack the cozy space, in which prints by Frida Kahlo and Isabelle Duncan line walls hung with vintage hats, while Moroccan fabrics punch up classic Americana furniture." Pieces range from around $28-$88. Thursday nights owner Shareen Mitchell offers happy hour treats to go with your vintage. An NYC outpost is also on the way, per the site.
