Zak and Gillette Wing worked at Housing Works together before opening their store, Holler & Squall in 2009. The second part of their name “Things Unlimited” perfectly describes what this antique shop is all about. They deal in a range of objects from furniture to jewelry that focuses on no particular era, rather limiting their selection based on aesthetic and quality. From the very cozy tuft leather sofas to the vintage gold and silver necklaces, the shop is ever changing.
