Olde Good Things started out as a regular stallholder at flea markets, and is now one of the largest architectural antiques dealers in the USA.

Olde Good Things started out as a regular stallholder at flea markets, and is now one of the largest architectural antiques dealers in the USA. The owners used to rifle through trash to find and restore treasures, and now have a reputation as antiques salvagers and will remove valuable furnishings from buildings prior to demolitions.

The atmosphere and interior set-up of the Olde Good Things stores (there are three stores in NYC, one in L.A., and a massive warehouse in Scranton, PA) is like entering museums. The prices do also reflect the high quality of the pieces and the skilled workmanship that goes into restoration and maintenance. Therefore,Olde Good Things may not be the best location to pop into for an impromptu visit or impulsive shopping session; more likely it will be a case of saving up for a desired item or indulging in a much-loved piece. Regardless of that, each Olde Good Things store is incredible to look around, regardless of expertise in antiques and furnishings.

Everything that could ever be needed to furnish or decorate a household can be found in the inventory of Olde Good Things. The staff in all the stores are quick offer help, advice and further information about the items, and are also willing to negotiate on some of the prices.

To make the shopping experience all the more enjoyable, Olde Good Things is also a non-profit enterprise. 50% of their profits funds mission work in Haiti, so customers get the double bonus of acquiring quality goods and supporting a charitable endeavor while doing so. Guilt-free shopping at its best!

    This store closed because the building was sold. They still have several other locations, in NYC and elsewhere. Great store(s).

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
