Living in downtown NYC, and Long Island NYS

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


  While waiting for yesterday's deluge to stop, I looked around the CURE THRIFT SHOP:  Here is a sampling of what I spotted - some of the older stuff has been appraised at high values, but the prices tagged are reasonable and sometimes negotiable.  It is one of the more fun thrift shops, as they go.  Donations are tax deductible.   So that's cool for stuff you wouldn't want to leave just anywhere.  

 Just click on the bottom, left hand corner,  to STOP and START show for a longer look.

(with sound)      

 Continuing from yesterday's introduction with the rocking horse

Items include:  1) two handsome birdcages, 2) the rocking horse, (said not available for a little while,  3) an electric Singer sewing machine that works, with ornate steel decoration, 4)  a baby grand piano made in Vienna in 1860c, needs work,  5) a six piece place setting with accessories -  1920s American Limoges ware - an unusual  combination of Art Deco and French period style, 6) corn muffin bake tray,  7) a table of miscellany,  8) a doll and other oddments.  And many, many other oddments!  Books, 78 records, baskets.  DOWN STAIRS: A fashion for any occasion.   Call the DIABETES CURE store: 1-212-505-SHOP  111 East 12th Street (between 3rd and 4th avenues) NY

 ( Note:  I am not in the business of selling.  I do love to browse and tell about an interesting concept of a particular kind.  And if it makes a good picture story so much the better!)

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
