Looks like a Flamingos Vintage Pound is coming to 1st Avenue
Renovation work is going on inside the papered-up windows at 143 First Ave. between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street.
EVG correspondent Steven notes that signs are now up inside the windows for Flamingos Vintage Pound...
This will be the latest location for FVP, which as the name implies, sells vintage clothing by the pound. An outpost opened on Stanton Street last summer. The company, now in its 10th year of business, has multiple stores in Europe, as well as in Los Angeles, Houston and Miami.
Anyway, not really what we expected for the space that has been empty for nearly 18 months. It seemed destined to be an e smoke shop.
Until December 2017, this space was home to the bar-restaurant portion of Paquito’s. The quick-serve Mexican restaurant still operates a newly remodeled outpost next door.
