JLinSnider is hosting a pop-up shop with Local 172 on Thurs. April 19. The Local 172 Trading Post, recently opened in TriBecCa, specializes in vintage finds for men and women from classic brands like L.L. Bean, Pendleton, and Ralph Lauren.

Though just a few weeks old, the shop has already gotten some major press from the likes of Time Out NY, Vogue, and the New York Times thanks to its unique provenance and setting. David Chang and David Barnett started out at Brooklyn Flea selling thrift store finds and screenprinted T-shirts, and they eventually set up shop in the lobby of music and publishing business DD172, where they work as creative directors. Most of the pieces are priced below $75.

JLinSnider is going all out for the event, presented by DD172 and Visualive. DD172 founder Damon Dash will be in attendance, and event co-sponsor BluRoc Records will have performances from Mckenzie Eddy, Kat CHR, and DJ Boogie Dash. You'll also find a photography exhibit by BluRoc Magazine and American Nu Magazine editor Raquel Horn.

The event is free and will go on from 7-11 p.m. Find out more info here.
