What You'll Get
Shoppers are hunting experts, searching through jungles of clothing racks for just a glimpse of the perfect feral boot or the rare and wild Oxford. Top the shopping food chain with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $60 worth of overstock and liquidated merchandise, including clothing, accessories, and housewares, at Peachfrog in Williamsburg.
Peachfrog filters the finest overstock and liquidated apparel, accessories, and housewares, diluting them down to their purest and lowest-priced form by offering savings of 50% to 90% off retail prices. Snag items such as Current/Elliott women's jeans in a blue-gray rainbow of styles and washes ($45) or a women’s dress from the Spring 2011 collection of Danish couturier Gestuz ($65), which exploits its time-zone advantage to unveil fashions six hours in the future. Linens make an ideal housewarming gift for a domesticated pal, and accessories such as mini gold ID tag necklaces ($15) are thoughtful options for friends in constant fugue states. Check out Peachfrog's new arrivals for fresh-on-the-shelf fashions.
Founded by sculptor Bill Norton and inventory liquidator Howard Blumberg, Peachfrog embodies both panache and providence. The Brooklyn boutique has garnered praise from the venerable pens of the New York Times and New York magazine.
- William Norton… opened Peachfrog in November with Howard Blumberg, a professional liquidator. With more than 20 years in the business, Mr. Blumberg knows how to find sweet deals that bigger stores overlook. – Mike Albo, New York Times
- This 6,500-square-foot discount boutique is a cross between a wholesale liquidation store and a permanent sample sale. Up for grabs is a treasure trove of high-quality, low-priced loot (all brand-new!), with shipments arriving daily from all over the world. – Rachel LeWinter, Time Out New York

As a partner of the NY Waterway's East River Ferry, Peachfrog gives travelers from across the five boroughs a compelling reason to trek out to North Williamsburg by boat. The overstock boutique fits in well with its up-and-coming surroundings, outfitting guests with the dresses, hats, and handbags necessary to stand out among the hip crowd that frequents the nearby wine bars, brew pubs, and underground cinemas.
These chic apparel items—along with the store’s housewares and accessories—arrive directly from boutique retailers. Peachfrog does its part to ensure that they move along quickly, marking them at up to 90% off their original prices and continually seeking out new items to take their place. "They're finds, they're treasures, they're gone," cofounder Howard Blumberg notes. He specializes in tracking down unique items, kindly passing on pieces that one could easily find in a chain or department store.
Blumberg founded the shop with business partner and sculptor Bill Norton, a pioneer of the area's arts community who formerly served as the director of installations at MoMA PS1. Under Norton's artistic hand, Peachfrog transformed from the hull of an old egg-roll factory into an industrial-chic boutique. Today, men's clothing items dwell in what was once a large freezer, and the factory kitchen’s original range hoods extract heat from sundresses entering their supernova stage in the dressing rooms. In 2009, the New York Times gave Peachfrog an approving nod, citing the store's expansive inventory as well as its close proximity to other charming shops and street vendors.
