NAME BEHIND THE NAME: LIMBO VINTAGE




aside from the cut out in the platform symbolizing this time of literal limbo, personally and globally, our new limbo styles have a late 60s and 70s influence. it's the name of a vintage store credited to having started new york's vintage shopping scene on st. marks when it opened in 1965. some good history of it here and here! wish we were around back then to have experienced and shopped it (the st. marks of yore). the sign was left behind after the store closed down, which of course is now long gone and has been replaced with yet another poorly designed apartment building.
