This weekend I found myself in need of a few odds and ends in the kitchen. Fishs Eddy is hands down the best place to find all of the kitchen and serving gear you never knew you needed. They stock really basic flatware, standard white plates, glasses, silverware etc. but they also make their own series of really fun and cute designs. For example, their ‘Brooklynese’ line which features sawlt and peppa shakers, a buttah dish and a shuguh bowl. Perfect Brooklyn dialect.
This place is heaven. Every time I go I see a million things that I want, it’s almost as bad as going to the Barney’s shoe department (that is serious trouble for me). Sadly this trip I stuck to my shopping list. One crucial aspect of shopping in New York City is remembering that you have to get your purchases home. Unlike most other cities in America where you can pile your shopping in the back of you car most New Yorkers have to haul their shopping home. Often that means negotiating subways, walking several blocks, bumping into people…as you can imagine it’s a real hassel and can put a damper on buying bigger, heavier items. So aside from being able to afford a shopping spree you have to also be able to transport your indulgences. If it hadn’t been 85° out and I had a car I would have gotten a cute cake stand, a set of new bright blue mixing bowls and a few other cumbersome things. There’s always the online store for those though!
Here are a few snaps from my trip.
