We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Fox 5 NY for the new segment featuring our 52nd St, Midtown NY store. Fox5 reporter Cristal Young received a New York history store tour by the store manager, Jim DiGiacoma.

Our Altered Antiques include a variety of salvaged materials, allowing for an opportunity to make near anything! Some of our favorites include
