NAVA is all about new and vintage apparel and accessories. Unlike many online apparel stores, NAVA started out in May 2008 with a retail store located on Thayer Street in Providence, RI. It began as a dream between two roommates who transformed a rough old record store into a funky chic retail space. After demolishing several walls, putting up some new ones, painting every surface imaginable, and buying three mannequins we like to call Rudy and the Judys, NAVA opened its endearingly glass-paned door to offer stylish new and vintage clothes to every girl and guy with the sense to look good. With a penchant for cowboy boots, funky and fancy dresses, silk scarves and gold jewelry, we try to have a little bit of everything so that no one leaves NAVA empty-handed. You can visit them on-line at ShopNava, or, can visit their brick and mortar shop at 281 Thayer Street on the East Side of Providence. We are pleased to have NAVA join the Urban Vintage Bazaar for the first time.
