I was down near Union Square when I saw a sign for ABC Carpet and Home.
It’s one of those institutions, a huge furniture and homewares store which I’d heard about but never been to and so I wandered in for a browse.
I have a love of furnishings, vintage glass and eclectic tableware and it seemed I had found my Mecca.
I strolled around touching wood, ceramics and glass. Admiring the merchandising and thinking that perhaps I should be an interior decorator or just a collector of lovely things.
It was inspiring and while I resisted the temptation to buy, I have time to go back before I leave…
Brocanting in New York!
