Owner, John Fondrisi, gained inspiration for the shops name '1926' from his grandfather's past — a son of an Italian immigrant who was determined to create a career for himself in the Great Depression, while contributing to his family's income by working long evening hours as a pattern maker, and attending art school during the day.
At 1926 you will discover vintage style, true-vintage clothing and home accessories dating from the 1920s to the 1990s. The boutique is decorated with stunning home decor from Mirrors to glassware. Custom graphic fabrics transformed into clothing, t-shirts and scarves are created by John himself from his Grandfather's 20th Century fashion sketches. The boutique features lovely vintage jewelry as well as contemporary pieces hand made by Brooklyn local artists. A sweet spot to visit when searching for something special.
