NYC's Antiques Garage

I mentioned on Friday that Adam and I were heading to New York to stay with friends and celebrate another's birthday, and we certainly had fun! Tomorrow I'll share more about how I spent Saturday, but for now I'll be recapping our Sunday morning visit to The Antiques Garage in Chelsea.

By no means the first visitors, Adam and I walked leisurely through the indoor flea market (located in what we estimated was a parking garage) at about 10:30. Quickly I knew what the market's strongest offerings were: the fabulous vintage artwork!
Check it out:

A vivid illustration of soldiers, $58 I recall:
This painting will always be remembered as "the one that got away" because I couldn't determine its price or its seller...imagine my annoyance!
Wouldn't it have looked lovely in my den!?

And just to round out a great weekend, we stopped by Wogies on Greenwich & Charles for a cheesesteak before heading back to the city that made this its signature cuisine.
I can tell what Adam's thinking here: "Just 20-something days 'til pitchers report to Spring Training." Ha!
Hope you all had as great a weekend as we did!
More on NYC tomorrow!

  4. Sounds like fun! I love a good day spent thrifting!

  5. So you didn't buy anything?? I've been slowly adding to my art collection. It's fun but also a definitely something I could learn more about.

  6. Alas, Naomi, I did not have the patience and the physical fortitude to deal with the freezing temps on Sunday...I'm still totally bummed about the waves painting (ugh!).


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
