BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Better hop to it if you want a new wardrobe.

A Bed-Stuy boutique is playing Easter Bunny with an "adult egg hunt" that could net you some vintage swag.

Miss Master's Closet's annual Easter Egg Hunt started last year as a way for owner Jessica Master to celebrate her favorite childhood pastime while selling off some stock.

"Easter's always been my favorite holiday," said Master, 32. "Even as an adult, if I could go on egg hunts I would."

The hunt, during store hours on April 20 inside the shop at 1070 Bedford Ave., gives patrons an opportunity to drink cocktails and search for free clothing, shoes, sunglasses, bags and other accessories, Master said.

Items marked with a special "Easter egg" tag are free. At least 30 items hidden throughout the store will be free to take, she said.

While searching through the tags, hunters will also have a chance to look through the other items, all detailed and repaired by Master herself.

"Part of what I'm really trying to further here is the idea of vintage reusing and recycling," Master said. "I just thought it was a good way for people to pay more attention to the clothes."

Master said she owes that attention to clothes in part to her days searching for eggs with her family on Easter Sunday.

"It's about the hunt," Master said.

"This is why I have this job, because I like finding things. So for me, it was just a natural ability I had with vintage clothing."
