Vintage Boutique ‘GeorgiaNYC’ Opens Tonight at 27 Orchard Street

Just when we thought 27 Orchard Street would live a perennial pop-up existence, the store just scored a long-term tenant. Strange Loop Gallery and Phresh Produce are both in the rear-view mirror. In their place, a new vintage boutique called GeorgiaNYC.

Yup, the address is returning to its previous function as clothing purveyor. GeorgiaNYC will specialize in women’s vintage threads, which might give another likeminded newcomer on the block – La Petite Mort – some pause. It opens tonight at 6pm.

Eponymous proprietor Georgia Fenwick also added a bit of conspicuous exterior flare, namely a red neon pineapple bolted onto the marquee (replacing the “H” in shirts). This fruit is actually the business logo for GeorgiaNYC.

Also, we’d like to point out that the full length of Orchard Street now boasts two Georgia-named establishments.
