LARCHMONT–Ronnie and Jeff Frank are owners of AbbottKinney, a store that opened on Palmer Avenue in Larchmont last August. They sell vintage, or “pre-loved” items, as Ronnie puts it. More like a vintage paradise.
The couple has sold and collected for many years at markets in New York City, but it was always their dream to open a store. The store’s name evokes a neighborhood in Venice Beach, California
Ronnie admits she does get attached to some special items, catching herself at times saying to someone, “Do you really want that?”
Look for mirrors, head vases, costume jewelry, bakelite from the 30s and 40s (originally an industrial material for insulation of wires, that happen to make beautiful bracelets), old pins signed from vintage companies, glass lamps, pottery, purses, dresses… Its hard not to find a perfect gem as a gift for someone, or maybe yourself.
