Peachfrog—highlighted by the New York Times—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%–90% off retail prices. As customers peruse the wide inventory of men’s and women’s fashion, shoes, and housewares, they can peek at the original pricing and immediately calculate the savings they can put toward parrot braces. Clothing from Torn by Ronny Kobo, such as the women’s American flag cut-off tank ($34.99; originally $94), marries vintage design to a stylish fit, and Nine West Jasmarie knee-high boots ($89.99; originally $189) stylize shins. Cino women’s jackets accent curves at discounts of 75%, and men’s super-soft tees ($6.98) wrap torsos in high-quality cotton. Candles and tree planters add a lavish touch to homes mourning the loss of a favorite chimney.
Peachfrog’s retrofitted showroom infuses high-end fashion shopping with industrial flourishes such as brick walls and old kitchen range hoods. Like a time traveler’s wardrobe, the inventory is always in rotation, though the newest arrivals page tips shoppers off to the latest selections from contemporary boutique and independent designers.

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.
