Another Flamingos Vintage Pound opens in the East Village, this one on 11th Street

The second East Village outpost of Flamingos Vintage Pound opened on Saturday here on 11th Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue. Seems like a good spot for the shop — on a corridor with like-minded businesses such as Buffalo Exchange and Tokyo Joe.

Another Flamingos debuted at 143 First Ave. between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street two weekends ago. Apparently they are opting for smaller storefronts as opposed to renting larger, more expensive space.

These are the latest locations for FVP, which as the name implies, sells vintage clothing by the pound. FVP 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, Miami and Brooklyn.

I like those stores because they feel super local, and they're inexpensive as well.

I've been to the First Ave one -- it's great! Very fair pricing, fun mix of stuff.
