For years I’ve been obsessed with a store in Manhattan called Olde Good Things. It’s a Vintage/Antique store in Manhattan (that has a HUGE warehouse in Scranton, PA), that specializes in crazy things like old doors, and factory carts, and weird granite mantels. They also make beautiful reclaimed wood tables. In our old apartment, we used one of their factory carts as a kitchen island – you’ll spot it in many of my photos on this blog. I LOVED that cart. Sadly, when we sold the house, the buyers wanted it as part of the deal. Since I had no space for it in our new house, it only made sense to leave it there. After all, it was a big pat on the back that someone else thought I had good taste.
A few weeks ago, the store opened another location RIGHT NEXT TO MY OFFICE. I walk buy it every day, staring at all the goods and dreaming of the day when I have more than 1200 square feet of space to fill with stunning vintage pieces. But for now, I just live vicariously through the windows.
The window display for the last few weeks has included this BEAUTIFUL set. (Please excuse the glare!)
I’m literally DYING over it every time I pass buy. I want to fill that bucket with ice and drink Hendricks with a splash of tonic out of those glasses RIGHT NOW. But oh yeah… I still have about six more weeks of this whole pregnancy thing to go, AND vintage glassware is literally the last thing our house needs. I have a collection in storage and in our liquor cabinet that I’ve collected here and there. What can I say? I like to drink gin and I like to drink it from old glasses.
Do you have strange particular preferences for how to drink your favorite beverages?
