Local stories for a strong community. Tune in for the latest from Bushwick, a rapidly changing Brooklyn neighborhood exploding with arts, activism, and entrepreneurship.


Going for the Sock Drawer

We’ve heard in previous episodes about how Bushwick has become one of Brooklyn’s most dynamic communities for everything from food to art. Take a walk around the neighborhood, and you’re sure to notice another scene that’s thriving here: thrift stores and vintage shops. But that’s not without some complicated feelings, as some people see the increasingly hip secondhand industry as a herald of gentrification.

This week, we sit down with one of the owners behind Bushwick’s newest vintage shop to discuss: What makes a secondhand store tick, and what role can it play in Bushwick’s future?


We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to Cat and her partners in MCM for taking us behind the scenes of the vintage world, and sharing more about their early work here in the community. To learn more, follow Brooklyn Vintage Company on Instagram (, or visit them for yourself at 194 Irving Ave.

Of course, we’d also like to thank you for tuning in. We’ll be back next week with our final episode of the season, an exciting collaboration with our friends at the new Bushwick blog, This Bushwick Life ( You won’t want to miss it.
