The fall of Hairy Mary’s Vintage last week marks the third in a series of storefront closures at 147-149 Orchard Street in less than six months. Hudson Street Papers called it quits over the summer, and Guitar Man re-located to 116 East Seventh Street back in early October. Despite the bad news, however, the “vintage” boutique is not down for the count. They will now maintain a steady weekend presence across the river at the Brooklyn Flea Market.

Hairy Mary’s issued the following farewell on their website:

After 4 great years of having our store on Orchard Street we will be happily returning to our roots of the flea markets for now.

We will continue to sell at the Brooklyn Flea Market Saturday and Sundays, last days outdoors 21/22nd November and starting indoors in Dumbo both Saturday and Sundays on 5th December 81 Front Street, Brooklyn.

We are really grateful to you, all our customers, that have discovered us on Orchard St and to the many of you out there that have known us since our Chelsea Flea Market days, we appreciate that you keep coming back and spreading the word about us. We have loved having the store and love finding great things for you all. A big thank-you for all the great notes you have sent us,. Being able to contribute to you feeling fabulous, enjoying shopping and having fun dressing makes it all worth while.
