i went to hello again a few days ago

If you've been following my blog since the beginning (for which I applaud you, I go into my archives sometimes and want to punch myself in the face) you'll know I basically only shop at goodwill and my local vintage stores when I can. I haven't visited Hello Again in a long time because it's pretty out of the way for me and also happens to be awkwardly close to some people who I'm not close to anymore, but I went because I missed it. And they changed the layout and it's lovely!

local designers necklaces up for grabs

Local designers often sell their work at the vintage stores here; Hello Again has tons of Jersey artists. Those necklaces are pretty rad, I want the green/white/pink one.

You can always get cheap vintage shoes here. Actually everything here for the most part is REALLY cheap. I'm talking $8 vintage, not $55 like in most vintage stores.

mens vintage

They have a small selection of menswear (they are a MINISCULE sized store, about the size of my room) but it's all good. I found this amazing Peter Jenson like ensemble in the mens section but it was too small for me. Sob.

For such a small store they always pack it to the top with good stuff. Abigail used to always leave with a ton of accessories.

I left with the pink hat in this picture and a slinky black dress (once again, the influence Kristin has on me is pretty scary) that I've been wearing under 23423424 layers of black and long long layers and peplums and chains.

H.A is owned by the sweetest people ever, I mean it. I haven't been there in ages, I went in there with a completely different look than the one I had last time I visited -- months ago -- but they still remembered me and were the sweetest people ever. If you go in there with even just a $20 to shop you can leave with a bunch of stuff and some new friends. I adore them.

On a different tangent... every so often I get emails asking where to shop in Jersey and NYC and I don't go shopping that often, but I did a post on it awhile ago. Hopefully it helps!

Wow, yea, I love your thrift posts the most! Thanks for putting up so many photos of this cool store.

Wow, that's pretty cool! Almost unbelievable that they would have shoes for $8! The only vintage store in my area is expensive. >>

I would love to go here some day, I'll keep it in mind for that far off road trip I will undoubtedly do to New York. It's slightly similar to other vintage stores in my area but this one seems to have such a good selection of vintage jewelry, which is sadly rare.

cavaan said...

wow your goodwill stores are actually decent. (lovely photos), most of ours just smell like grandparents and is disgustingly over priced. they all sell good clip on earrings though haha.

ohhhh man, like c h i n a was a pain when it came to internet, i wanted to tell you your new hair is too rad!!! *admiration* (and that post if i remember was quite inspirational without sounding corny haha), but exactly what i was feeling.

okayyyyyy speakkk soon. seoul is at another day... :)

I hate vintage stores that over price everything! Love it when there are hand me downs that are actually reasonably priced, not more than what it used to sell for 20 years ago.

Ron said...

I loved the vintage store, it's so adorable and affordable!... The few vintage stores I've gone too either have poor merchandise or are just expensive...

Andie said...

Wow your photos used in this are really good, infact.. I love them! You've reminded me why I love vintage! :) and I'm thinking that store should open up in London sometime soon!
