Christine Costello has opened Feels NYC, a vintage–slash–vinyl–slash–home-goods shop, in Ridgewood (59-17 71st Ave.).
“This piece by ceramist Courtney Krings ($64) is — well, I guess a vase because it has an opening — but it’s really just an object that looks like the bottom half of a chicken’s body.”
“We have Alice Coltrane’s Universal Consciousness on vinyl ($27). Her music is ecstatic. And the cover is great: It’s just awesome Alice Coltrane, looking beautiful.”
“Mike Zimmerman makes album covers — he did the most recent Kurt Vile album — but he’s also an artist. This piece, called Vape Scape ($300), is abstract and done with acrylic on wood.”
“My favorite vintage tee right now is a 1971 “Peanuts” T-shirt ($68). It has Snoopy on the front in his Joe Cool persona. And the quality is great: faded but intact.”
“We have a lot of art books — by Philip Glass, Yoko Ono, Susan Orlean. I particularly love A Designer’s Universe, by the designer Alexander Girard ($85). It’s so joyful to look at.”
