When it comes to unique souvenirs and kitchenwares, Fishs Eddy is my favourite store. If you are looking for something thats is 100% New York and more special than the usual tourist stuff, this is the shop.
You can bring home mismatched vintage china, dishtowels with maps of Brooklyn, matchboxes with unusual New York landmarks, mugs with subway tiles, zippered pouches that have Teddy Roosevelt high-fiving a bear or other kitschy kitchenwares.
The store is decorated with antique furniture and vintage oil portraits. This perfectly showcases their beautiful, quirky, and brilliantly useful kitchen ware. The oil portraits are all authentically vintage and were found at various flea markets, thrift shops, and garage sales around the country.
Fishs Eddy (the names comes from a small hamlet in upstate New York)
