Our First Press!

From The Brooklyn Heights Blog:

Holler and Squall

Holler and Squall: Things Unlimited at 71 Atlantic Avenue just opened their doors for business at the dead end of Atlantic Avenue. I’d been walking by and loved the name, peeked into the windows, and loved the aesthetic. Today I talked to Zachariah Wing, co-owner with his wife, Gillette. I asked him, “How would you categorize your shop?” He said, “Collectible oddities, antique industrial, something for everyone.”

In the far corner, I saw a Singer Sewing Machine, exactly the kind my grandmother had in her kitchen. As I looked at their model, it shone with black enamel with gold transfer, dated June 14th, 1910. It still works, and I still remember how to thread it. Amazing. I saw a Weymann Banjo, and two children’s school desks, one which had an original square slate. I love the collection of dolls; Madame Alexander’s Indonesia, several Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls, and a little bisque boy, plus an adorable collection of doll’s clothes; knickers, dresses, and nightgowns.

I tried on two rings, circa 1950, gold filled, and checked out an American Shaving Mirror. The husband and wife duo also create custom shelving from replaned lumber; old joists from construction sites. The name of the store comes from a blue grass song by Bill Monroe. I asked Zac, “Who opens a business in the midst of a recession?” He answered, “It’s the perfect time, we could never have been able to afford such a great space on Atlantic.” Stop on by and enter their carefully curated, endlessly fascinating collection of curios and antiques. They’re only open on Saturdays and Sundays, but you can call ahead for a private visit.
