The link here is to a blog in NYC called Here Be Old Things, and its proprietress faithfully charts the whole spectrum of NYC antiques, from the big shows and auctions they wouldn’t even let me in the door to, to the weekly sales and shops, like Hell’s Kitchen (formerly Chelsea) and some of the day-in day-out auction houses that aren’t the monopolizers. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a fan of Trader’s blog, as well.
Living in Manhattan for a dozen years, I had more than one occasion to go through many NYC fleas, and they were always interesting, and you could always tell who had the really good stuff because their booth was basically an empty spot on the ground.
Check out the blog and let me know what you think. We’ll be linking to it from time to time to check out the coverage.
