This summer, Neal Mello and Cyd Mullen opened the vintage store Grand St. Bakery, a huge space in Brooklyn where practically everything you see is for sale, from the soft, worn rugs on the floor to the oak tables stacked with holey tees. It’s a vagabond’s dream. As soon as Mello and Mullen opened the Bakery, they got rid of the apartment they shared, bought a camper van and hit the road, gathering things across the country to sell in the store. They often ask a friend to mind the shop during their trips, and spend weeks hitting up roadside vendors along the highway and sleeping on the beach under the stars. Pop into the store and they’ll tell you the story behind every piece; we asked them to share a few of their best.
