The weather outside may still be frightful, but it’s looking more and more delightful inside Petrune Ithaca!
We took advantage of the Presidents’ Day weekend to do a massive spruce-up, changing out clothes, refreshing displays, and topping everything off with a new coat of paint.
The store is bright and cheerful in oh-so-springy colors like robin’s egg blue, grass green, and bubblegum pink!
Now we just have to wait for Mother Nature to catch up…
P.S. Don’t forget the Grand Opening of Petrune Brooklyn this Saturday, Feb. 22, at 5pm at our brand-new Park Slope location, 233 5th Avenue!
Branching Out & Going Back to Our Roots
Petrune’s owners, Justin and Domenica, ran a store in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood before opening shop in Ithaca in 2002. For 12 years, Petrune has offered a carefully curated collection of vintage, new, and handmade items to artsy Ithacans.
So it’s exciting that Petrune has just opened a second branch in Park Slope—the neighborhood where it all began! Manager Lucy has relocated to Brooklyn to oversee the new branch at 233 5th Avenue, which, like the Ithaca store, offers a choice selection of men’s and women’s vintage clothing, with select new and handmade items and accessories.
Petrune in Brooklyn’s Grand Opening will be Saturday, February 22nd at 5pm! Ithacans and Brooklynites alike are invited to come celebrate our new space. For more information please follow the new shop on Facebook and Instagram!
On January 15th 2011, Petrune reopened after a devastating fire closed our doors. A year later we are happy to say that not only are we still here, but have had our best sales year to date. With your support, like a phoenix, we have risen from the ashes stronger (and even more stylish). Thank you Ithaca and our followers around the world.
Three months have passed and we are finally home at 126 East State Street. The store is freshly painted and scrubbed, and we are continuing to bring in tons of fantastic new vintage clothing. We couldn’t have done it without the help of Petrune’s fabulous sales staff, Jennifer, Lucy, Libby and Emily. Also the terrific, fast and efficient construction team of JBM Construction, and the interior design wizard, Darrel P. Thank you all for your hard work.

We’re back! Our space in the Holiday Store is officially open and packed with all new vintage treasures for you to explore. Our daily hours are 12-6 until Thanksgiving, and then 11-7 through the month of December.
The past few weeks have been a whirlwind, but we are thrilled to be part of the Holiday Store, its been too long since we’ve seen our incredibly fashionable friends of Petrune!
