INWOOD – LA FRONTERA – NOSTYLGIA T-SHIRT::AVAILABLE NOW

 

 This Nostylgia design collaboration with yet another talented local artist, Erich Erving, was inspired by 1950’s vintage iron-on graphics that celebrated our original American Frontiersmen like Daniel Boone who forged their way West into a pristine wilderness much like Inwood, symbolically the final frontier of this Manhattan landscape.  Long settled by generations of diverse New Yorkers and most recently known for its rich Latino heritage our Uptown neighborhood is a throwback to a forgotten NYC when neighborhoods were neighborhoods and they had a unimitateable natural pulse of their own.  Nostylgia is proud to call this “Frontera” our home for life, and it is an indelible part of our brand identity. Unlike the American frontier though we aim to retain the natural environment of Inwood and uptown in all its glory. So whether you’re a new or old resident or even just a visitor, stop into Nostylgia to pick up a “La Frontera” T-Shirt and to experience the spirit of Inwood embodied within our store, a unique experience and without a doubt, the best in NYC!

NOSTYLGIA X OPERATION PROM::TUXEDO DRIVE…

Stories have been told about them, movie’s and countless afterschool specials have been based on them; so what could be more Nostylgic than that four letter word that many high schoolers dream of…PROM. Yes, prom – the teenager’s rite of passage all packed into a single night designed to transform your average kid into a wining, dining, and dancing connoisseur of the black tie affair.

While Nostylgia is not advocating the wining part, we are teaming with Operation PROM and running a men’s formal wear drive. Nostylgia will be taking donations stating immediately and throughout the entire Month of May. We will gladly offer a 10% discount to anybody who is able to donate. While dresses are a bit easier to come by, Tuxedo are a rarer donation and Operation PROM often has to pay close to full priced for evening rentals; so they REALLY NEED THIS!

Operation PROM an AMAZING 501 C 3 Charity founded by Noel D’ Allaco in 2005. They serve to provide underprivileged students with dresses, tuxedos and all the things(not including wine) needed to enjoy Prom the way so many generations have before. They also provide scholarships and a vast array of  help for students moving on to the next steps of their educational pursuits.  Started in NY, Operation Prom now has chapters in many states across the nation and the students they help need all the donations you can afford.

Please spread the word to anybody who may have formal wear to donate. Operation PROM will also provide proof of donations for tax write-off purposes.

Thanks!

NOSTYLGIA DIY::IN STORE SIGNS PART II

The finishing part of a DIY project is always the most important because the classic DIYer probably has a basement of unfinished projects, Nostylgia included. However, we sort of finished this one, at least this one sign that is. Hand painted by our new design intern, Stephanie and nailed to our wood with vintage looking upholstery nails, you can now find our new sign cleverly hanging on our first fire escape when you walk in. Now only 9000000000 more signs to go……

NOSTYLGIA DIY::IN STORE SIGNS::PART I

The New American Classic is built by hand like all classics should be and do it yourself projects are a regular thing at Nostylgia. Whether building, painting, or creating in any way, DIY is always option 1,2,and 3.

This weeks project is hand made in store signage for our many clothing and shoe displays,  a long overdue need at Nostylgia. So we finally decided to tackle this small project starting with an old 2×4 leftover from a previous DIY project. Step 2 was to cut it into 12″ peices on my balcony in Yonkers, then to stain and hang dry right in front of Nostylgia at 251 Dyckman, where our DIY projects always draw a crowd asking, “what the heck are you guys up to now”.
