Meeps is my neighborhood vintage shop, making them my first (and often only) stop when I’m in need of an indefinable SOMETHING going into a weekend. The second exceptionally curated vintage outpost from the team behind Treasury + the Treasury Lithics line, owners Cathy Chung + Katerina Herodotou keep the racks filled with casual vintage from the 1960s onward. From patch-covered denim jackets to kimonos and worn-in tees, it’s all served up alongside an A M A Z I N G collection of re-worked, one-of-a-kind jewelry, crafted in-house from salvaged antique and vintage jewelry parts. Above, a few shots from their most recent, hands-on crafting session.”
