I adore vintage clothes. The historian in me loves how they provide a direct lesson on social culture, while the creative girly girl loves indulging herself in glam get-ups.
I rescue these cast-off delicacies for your consuming pleasure in between homeschooling my son and daughter who never tire of hearing stories about their great-great grandmother, Basya Berkman, the namesake of this store.
Basya was a tireless matriarch from the Old Country who inspired me to always look to the past with an eye for reinvention. A holocaust survivor, legendary dollar stretcher, and life-long seamstress, she nurtured all my childhood dreams. Every time I list an item in her name, I feel like I'm honoring her warmth, wisdom, and originality.
