Olde Good things opening on the new Bowery

On Wednesday night, we spotted this outside 302 Bowery, which most recently served as a boutique for designer Patricia Field...


The storefront had been for rent since last March. Asking price: $30,000. There is now a new tenant...


It will be another location of Olde Good Things, which boasts having "one of the largest inventories of unique and antique architectural items." There are currently Olde Good shops on the Upper West Side, Union Square as well as in Chelsea.

Joanne Klein, who had been looking for a tenant here, confirmed the news. "Their style works well with the neighborhood too," she said.


Last May, Field moved to her newly renovated showroom space at 306 Bowery/298 Elizabeth.

The lion - is it a water fountain? I remember using one just like it in Brainerd, MN back in the 70's.

Don't think it's a water fountain... not really sure... I wanted to put my head in its mouth and have someone take my photo, but...

Wow I just saw that lion several days ago on a flat bed truck somewhere in midtown. I was biking to work and really wanted to stop and photograph it to show my older sisters who have childhood head-in-the-lion-mouth fountain photos. I imagined it had just driven up from Myrtle Beach, SC, but alas probably only Chelsea.

Do you know that Olde Good Things is run by a Christian "community" (i.e. a cult)? See: http://thetimes-tribune.com/opinion/editorials-columns/christopher-j-kelly/city-council-s-lawyer-sides-with-reincarnation-of-the-biblical-elijah-against-the-taxpayer-1.980368

I was hoping for a better concept here! I give them a year.
