Originally founded as a buy-sell-vintage and gift shop in 2012, Friends NYC began as a friendship pact between wannabe-sisters and BFFs, Mary Meyer and Emma Kadar-Penner. Combining their experiences and expertise in fashion design, fashion/textile history and their shared obsession with thrifting, the duo said ‘I do!’ to opening their 2200 sq ft flagship in Bushwick, Brooklyn in 2012 and haven’t looked back - at least not that much ;)
For 11 years, Friends NYC has been an established shopping destination and kitsch haven in Brooklyn and beyond. Boasting a wide selection of unique gifts, home decor, elevated smoke essentials, candles, books, greeting cards, and of course, vintage!
Friends NYC proudly stocks and support local makers, artisans and various independent businesses. You’ll find NY locals like Brooklyn Candle Studio, Sackville & Co., and Le Puzz and global curiosities sourced from workshops in Japan, artisan alleys of Mexico City, and historic studios across Europe. Come fill your weird & wonderful heart and home with things from Friends NYC IRL or shop from the comfort of your bed online 24/7 FRIENDSNYC.COM, (you’re welcome ex-Nyers!)
