N. 6th Street between Bedford Avenue and Driggs Avenue
Malin's boutique, which has no sign, is located right around the corner from Blackbird Parlour on N.6th Street (just off Bedford Avenue). Malin is from Sweden, and the vintage pieces in her store come from all over Scandinavia and Europe rather than the States, giving them an extra edge. If you are looking for a dress that is one-of-a-kind, no exceptions, best go to Malin's. Though the clothes are a bit pricey, Malin (and her daughter, Nova) are very friendly and willing to negotiate with you, especially if you purchase in bulk.
