Antique shopping, yes please!
When we are on holidays we always check out flea markets and antique shops. And when I knew we were going to New York I couldn’t wait to see what the “Big Apple” had to offer. One of the most known flea markets is the Chelsea Flea Market, so of course we had to go there. It is an open outside area located on 39 W 25th St. with treasures of all kind. So you can find clothing, gemstones, african woodworks, antique decorations and old American goods from the 50’s (which is very popular by the Americans them self).
And also if you want to see even bigger items and more selected antiques there is this amazing hall just across the road called Showplace Antique Center. And I must say I think that was even more exciting for me. Because this massive building with 3rd-floor shops offering antique and vintage furniture, jewellery and collectibles had everything you could imagine. As you can see on the images I have posted there is so much diversity. We bough the gilded antilope’s book stands and the cognac glasses which fits perfectly into our living room. So if you are going to New York I would recommend checking out these places. You can read more about them here (Annex Markets). And I will also blog more about our antique and vintage shopping in a later post.
