So-called fashion flight continues to plague the Lower East Side…

Indeed, the Narnia vintage boutique at 161 Rivington Street – often cited at the top of fashion shopping lists – is moving out. Owner Molly Spaulding is closing the shop after thirteen years on the block. The sandwich board out front reveals as much. As such, there is currently fire sale to “clear storage for the move,” which means you can save 50% to 90% off everything.

The silver lining for this long-running business, however, is that Narnia is consolidating its footprint (and product) with the three-year-old outpost in Williamsburg (672 Driggs Street).

And in case you are not familiar with Narnia Vintage

Narnia is a collection of ever-changing vintage garments, textiles, and accessories, directed by the whims and inspirations of what has now been many seasons. It is inspired by highly stylized individuals, world textiles, nature’s color palettes, travel, quality, the thrill of what the hunt reveals and what just feels good to wear.

Thus begins a new chapter in the chronicles of Narnia.
