A grand opening from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, offers the best way to understand KIN, a new East Village shop where merchandise stretches from custom and vintage jewelry to apothecary wares and random household goods. “Rad stuff,” in the words of partners Marisa Adamson and Heather Ann Roe, who promise drinks and giveaways at the opening. Both are jewelry designers who got together at the inaugural Vintage & Made Fair in 2014. They decided on a trade—a vintage turquoise Zuni ring from Roe’s Kin Vintage in exchange for a custom wedding band from Adamson’s Daily Bliss Jewelry Design. See where that exchange led them when you visit the new KIN, featuring local and American-made goods at 333 E. Grand, No. 107.
