Brick & Mortar Stores
Olde Good Things had its mere beginnings in NYC during the heyday of the Chelsea Antique Market in the early 90’s and then opened its first retail store on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn in 1995. Today, 24 years later, you can visit our four brick and mortar retail locations, including one “pop-up” store at 71 Eighth Avenue between West 13th and 14th Street. Visit each one location and see if we don’t live up to our “humble boast” of being “the most interesting stores in New York City!” Our largest New York Store located conveniently near Union Square. This store features the largest assortment of original hardware. Our Upper West Side, Broadway location has the best assortment of marble mantels and large chandeliers and our Lower East Side, Bowery location has a wide assortment of smaller practical original lighting. Our pop-up store, 8th Ave has an interesting variety of decorative items and furniture. Come see us at each location to get the full Olde Good Things experience!
Each store has a personality of its own, with a variety of original lighting, architectural elements including mantels, doors, glass, hardware as well as our unique line of altered antique furnishings including mirrors, tables and shelving. You will also find vintage, industrial and mid-century original furniture and decorative furnishings. Presently featured in each store is a wide assortment of items reclaimed from the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which is now undergoing a major renovation. You will find from this New York City landmark, original marble and wooden mantels from for instance, the “Cole Porter Suite.” You will also find doors from the “Marilyn Monroe Suite” and lighting from almost every suite and hallway as well as conference and ballroom lighting including chandeliers from the Starlight Room. Kitchen and service items available including flatware, silver plated serving bowls and platters, many with the Waldorf signature.
