Last week, we went on an adventure. We tinkered with trinkets from Paris pantries circa the 1870s, learned a little somethin’ about old world cocktail shakers, sifted through ancient postcard rarities, then had the pleasure to mingle with the mad hatter behind the collection, Andre Burgos.
Every weekend at the Antique’s Garage in Chelsea, Andre drifts among his elaborate booth and enchants the passersby with his endless knowledge of old objects and a passion for his hobby that is palpable.
Do yourself a favor and spend an afternoon at Andre’s Tavern. You’ll be inspired.
