Odd Twin, the vintage clothing and accessories shop that opened on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Degraw Street in April 2009, will be closing in about two weeks, according to a note posted to Facebook and sent out to mailing list subscribers.
"These are the last days of ODD TWIN and we invite you to come in and shop our amazing deals," the note said, going on to advertise 30-50% off sales on everything in the store and deeper discounts if you buy in bulk. "Come in and say "Goodbye" and pick up some new stuff," it continues. "Only TWO WEEKS left to get some great vintage at low, low prices. ODD TWIN <3s YOU and WILL MISS YOU!!!"
Owner Francesca Neville brought her unique, quirky style to the shop, where she sold moderately-priced men's and women's vintage clothing (some of which she personally brought back from disrepair), baby clothes, jewelry, hats, belts, other accessories, retro furnishings, and assorted knick-knacks.
This stretch of Fifth Avenue, aside from being a burgeoning restaurant tow, is also a veritable wonderland of vintage stores, with a handful that have opened this year alone and more popping up all the time. Neville recently put the space up for sale, as she's expecting her second child in October.
