O Mistress Mine, on 11th between 2nd and 1st ave (or is it 2nd and 3rd?) is a GOLD MIIIIIINE! Especially is your wallet is full of GOOOOOLD. But actually, there are some deals to be found. And the woman who owns the shop (Wanda Hanlon) is so fantastic and friendly, it's worth stopping in just to say hi. She's been in the business for over 40 years, and has, as she says, "a lot of connections."
You can find hats and coats and dresses and shoes and jewlery from the 20s and beyond. (We saw a pre-Victorian ring [!] it was gorgeous. obviously.)
