Madison Ave has long been synonymous with high fashion, boutique stores, and all the amazing designer items you could possibly imagine. We at Olde Good Things are super proud of our Madison Ave store and the name it’s making for itself in the city and the community. There are hundreds of salvaged, repurposed, and restored items on display in our store, but the one thing that seems to keep grabbing our customers’ attention is the lion that greets them as they arrive.
This lion, a vintage, beautiful salvaged amusement park fountain piece from years ago, is the unofficial mascot of OGT, but that doesn’t stop people from asking how much he costs, or where they could pick up their own lion.
Some who stop to see the lion can’t help but take selfies, snap quick pictures, or share a tale about how our lions remind them of someplace or some wonderful memory from their childhood. We couldn’t be more proud of our lion, the amazing positive emotions he evokes, and the delightful buzz he brings to our stores.
If you’ve visited our Madison Ave store, you may have met our lion, or if you’ve seen our truck making the rounds in the city, you might have caught a glimpse of his twin brother who makes a permanent roaring statement from the back of our open-back truck.
Do you have questions about our lion? Please ask. We’d really enjoy providing any information you need. We are also eager to show you a few hundred of the other items we’ve salvaged over the years, and the hundreds of thousands of items we have in our ever expanding inventory. If we don’t have it in our Madison Ave store, you may be able to find it at one of our other locations.
