I have been trekking it around NYC for 4 days now - and all 4 nights I have come home utterly exhausted with swollen feet. So many things I would like to do it's hard to stop.
So today was another Brooklyn day - I tried tackling Atlantic Avenue because it has my most favorite antique shops, but blast! They're all closed on Mondays - I'm such a sucker. Here are a few of my favorites - some were open, some not.
City Foundry - CLOSED
So sad because they have my absolute favorite collection of over priced industrial lighting - ah shucks
Darr - OPEN!
I think it's perhaps the best edited antique shop ever - reminds me of Edward Allen Poe some how
Eva Gentry - OPEN!
Even though I liked the name Butter better (I wonder why, fat kid), but I do still obsess over the color palette in here - my ma would be so disappointed if she saw it too because it's got the most beautiful gradient of white to cream and black to gray. She's always given me a hard time for not wearing enough color.
Saipua - CLOSED?
They moved and I couldn't even find their new place which was tragic because I do love being in this shop and gushing to who ever is working at the time about just how much I love this shop. They're flowers are transformative - and the soaps just right
Erie Basin - CLOSED
