After 14 years selling stylish women's vintage clothes and accessories, AuH20 Thriftique has closed its shop at 84 E. Seventh St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
AuH20 closed on Oct. 1 — the shop's 14th anniversary.
Kate Goldwater, who opened the storefront after graduating from college at age 22, made the announcement on Instagram. She will continue the business via online sales.
On Sept. 17, she shared her story in a post on Medium titled "The President Ruined a Business I Spent 14 Years Building."
As she wrote: "I joke with my husband that it's just a secondhand store. I wasn't saving lives, but I think I really did have something special in the East Village. I really do feel like I'm letting everyone down by closing it, but I also don't think that I have another option."
