With its newly-christened vintage emporium at Astor Place on Lafayette Street, New York City-based vintage archive and retailer What Goes Around Comes Around is the unofficial mecca for downtown vintage.
Behind these heavy, salvaged gymnasium doors is the latest venture of New York City-based archive and retailer What Goes Around Comes Around: a newly-christened vintage emporium at Astor Place on Lafayette Street, rendering WGACA the unofficial mecca for downtown vintage. Vaulted ceilings and stark white columns contribute to a sense of airiness and space rarely found in a vintage store environment, which- combined with the beautifully-executed visual merchandising- does a lot to encourage browsing at length in this heavy foot-traffic neighborhood. WGACA’s signature selection of vintage denim and T-shirts lines shelves and display tables alongside workwear, accessories, apparel, and customized pieces from studded converse to [WGACA] logo-adorned military jackets. Our favorite: the customized denim cutoffs. Be sure to swing by for a dose of downtown cool.
What Goes Around Comes Around, 440 Lafayette Street at Astor Place, New York City. Monday – Saturday, 12pm – 10pm, Sunday, 12pm – 8 pm.
WGACA founders and owners Gerard Maione & Seth Weisser.
