Olde Good Things Union Square is located in one of the most popular districts of Manhattan. A focal point for New Yorkers and city visitors alike, you are likely to see something unforgettable at any time of day in Union Square. You may be caught up in an impromptu body building class or spectacular street performance, or simply cool your heels while lounging around the Square much as Kerouac and the other Beat writers did years ago.
Over the years here at Olde Good Things, we mastered our unique silvering glass technique. All the glass we use is 80-100 years old. Get a glimpse on how our workers in the glass shop use this technique on a piece of reclaimed clear glass.
If you frequent the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan you may have happened across our flagship store at 149 Madison Avenue. Impressive and fascinating, this sprawling ground floor space is populated with some of the finest design pieces in our inventory. An eclectic array of inventory from industrial chic to architectural antiques. Lots of NYC statement pieces!

When the producers for GEICO needed to find an interesting antique store to film their latest 30 second commercial, they decided Olde Good Things was the place to go. In early fall 2016, they contacted us and made their request. We thought it was a fun idea, and the next thing we knew they brought in their huge crew and took over the whole place for an entire day. For a 30 second commercial it was quite a to-do. Here’s a mother and daughter inspecting our antique door knobs. You can see the same wares today at our 10,000 square foot location where this was filmed, but sadly not the cuckcoo clock that they brought in with remote controls and voice-over actors. Nice job GEICO and thanks for the fun moment at Olde Good Things.

Tables come in many different shapes and sizes, and can be made from many different materials. At Olde Good Things, we like to keep things simple; we make our tables from only the finest salvaged wood and create masterpieces for our clients by incorporating other salvaged materials we find in our warehouses.
Here you can see a simple entryway transformed with a hand-made wrought iron and vintage glass awning designed by our customer, Paul Lombardo of Lombardo Iron & Railing Co., from Orange New Jersey.
The craftsmanship is typical of what you would find from the days gone by. When Paul took on this job, he decided vintage glass would bring the right finishing touch, and sure enough he was right.
Safety glass in a hammered texture is no longer fabricated new with this twisted chicken wire. Therefore Olde Good Things specializes in reclaiming factory windows and making this glass available today.
Take a look at the gallery of pictures from this installation and view the video of Paul Lombardo in his fabrication stages.
