This store, in the East Village is a must-see! Spark Pretty will take you on a fashion journey back in time! If you’re a colorful vintage lover, this is the place for you!
Forget about Gucci and Chanel bags. Classic dresses? Not in here. Spark Pretty is not a regular vintage store.
With pink and lilac walls and ceilings filled with hearts and polka dots, you’ll find yourself surrounded with tons of colorful, crazy, shiny products dating back to the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s
Spark Pretty is owned the by artist and stylist Amanda Dolan. She’s got a vast experience in fashion from working as a stylist for Betsey Johnson. Yes, you can find Betsey Johnson dresses here too.
The store “has been a longtime secret weapon for entertainment’s top wardrobe stylists seeking authentic and unique retro looks for their cast.” And, I can tell you it’s really a one of a kind spot.
Do you know that vintage tee with your favorite actors/singers? Or even, an idol from the past? If you’re looking for it, you are in the right place! That’s not your kind of vintage? Well, they also offer leopard prints and polka dots clothing, fringe jackets, sequins…and many neon pieces.
If you want to be dressed like that from head-to-toe, you can also find extravagant spike boots, funky socks, eccentric shades and wigs.
Maybe it’s time for you to feel like Madonna in “Desperately seeking Susan” or even, a modern version of Betty Boop!
Moreover, the decor is also a must-see: bean bags, string lights, a pink TV airing the old blockbuster movies…a perfect match!
Oh! There’s one more thing. The cherry on the cake: They also sell toys! You’ll come across so many troll dolls that you can finally get the chance to complete your collection! Baby Sinclair is also there waiting for you to remember the famous phrase: “not the mama”.
Amanda and her staff are dressed in the same mood to host you! And, if you need, they are ready to help you with personal styling and designer shopping consulting.
