‘Country Of’ Boutique Delivers Vintage Ephemera to Essex Street
Retail veterans of the Hester Fair continue to pollinate vacant storefronts on the other side of the street. Two in just the last few weeks, in fact.
Partybus Bakeshop soft-opened on Tuesday. Down the block, Country Of also joins the fray.
Country Of is a small pop-vintage boutique which took over the short-lived Cafe Grumpy test kitchen at 13 Essex. It traffics in the analog nostalgia from the eighties and nineties. Everything from band tees and leather jackets to VHS tapes and old packs of trading cards.
