Arriving at Lofty Vintage, a 2,000 square foot loft space is like setting foot into an undiscovered treasure island of fashion and design. Nestled in a turn of the century landmark warehouse in historic Yonkers, New York, Lofty Vintage has amassed an extensive collection of vintage clothing and accessories that never fail to pique the imagination and dazzle the eyes of visitors who are savvy enough to make the easy trip from nearby Manhattan and other environs.
Lofty Vintage owes its eclectic mix to Andrea Hall Levy, who has been honing her combined skills as a buyer, seller, stylist and businesswoman for nearly two decades. A native New Yorker, Andrea has been captivated by vintage fashions since her teens. This fascination led in part to a degree from Parsons School of Design. Traveling across America and Europe she set out on her quest to gather iconic examples of fashion throughout the decades. By the 1990s she had made the transition to selling. Collecting of course is a never-ending pursuit that Andrea takes seriously every day. Her mantra, "If I don't love it, I don't buy it" is familiar to her coterie of loyal customers. Andrea has become an important face at exhibitions and shows throughout the northeast and pieces from her collection have been seen in books, magazines and on the silver screen.
Sales, rentals, and consulting are available by appointment to designers, stylists, collectors, and anyone with a passion for fashion and design.
