Sweet sisters Wendy and LaRae Kangas, originally from Minnesota, opened the doors to Duo, a shop with a lovingly-selected mix of vintage and modern wears, in 2008. Duo has a self-described “Americana/Scandinavian style”, carrying both one-of-a-kind vintage and indie, locally made pieces that favor natural fibers, not synthetics. In collaboration with the local artist community, Duo sells work by emerging designers to keep their store fresh while supporting super talented jewelry and clothing designers. On a quintessential East Village block in an area the girls describe as "neighborly" you will find Erin Considine necklaces, Nishi metal jewelry (exclusive to the store), Keller, a popular designer who makes her own shoes and clothing for the shop, and clothing by popular brand Dusen Dusen. The exposed brick walls and cute pendant lamps, combined with the super friendly service and adorable puppy make it feel like shopping in the closet of your most fashionable friend. Kids and boyfriends will be entertained by Monster, the in-house pet turtle, while they wait.Show lessRead more
