The very welcoming store displays so many decor that it made our shopping easy to produce a new decor around our fireplace. We decided to go with a stone mantel, our only fear being that the installation time and work time into our home being of a few days with a mason. But against all odds, with the DRACME mantel they recommended me, it took less than two hours to install our mantel!
This is the quirkiest little store, that could only be found in Manhattan and stay in business!
When my mother first walked by this store, I swear she squealed in delight as it reminded her of being a little girl. The store owner travels around collecting vintage kitchen wares, such as plates, mugs, glasses, bowls, measuring cups, salt and pepper shakers, cocktail shakers, mixing bowls, to sell at his store. They are arranged so beautifully, in all colors of the rainbow. There is also a great collection of vintage Christmas ornaments and greeting cards.
For anyone wanting to relive his or her childhood, or for those who love vintage and want to bring it into their home, Mr. Pink is the place to go.
Call ahead to find out the hours.
If you are looking to upgrade your kitchen and/or bath with some new and quality pieces, this is a store to head to. They have name and known brands, a wide range of colors, and lots of new styles to experiment with - be it vintage, contemporary, deco or just timeless classic. Prices are fairmarket, but they do have a wide selection to chose from. They also carry an interesting section of seasonal items, if you want to invest in a few, like thanksgiving or halloween - it's fun, and you can go as crazy or as limited as you want.
Every neighborhood should have an At Home. Their products are beautiful, and I am always able to find a gift for any holiday/celebration.
Alan is the best!! Have him help you if he is free.
Nice collection and great price with quality service.
These people can't even be bothered to pick up the phone during regular business hours! Instead of finding out whether they carried what I was looking for, I ended up in a series of dead-end voicemails time and again despite multiple calls. Took my business elsewhere...
PROS: no idea
CONS: no help to be found
I treated myself to a last minute birthday massage by calling AREA at around 3pm in the middle of a snowstorm. They didn't have any appointments available, but he said he would try to get me a therapist to come in just for me.
Robert, the massage therapist, was friendly, kind, intuitive and most importantly the best massage therapist I have ever had the pleasure of having worked on me. And I've had TONS of massages in chi-chi spas around the country--nothing beats the casual, friendly vibe of AREA and the service was top notch. Not only that the accomodation of my last minute appointment is virtually unheard of in the spa industry. A MUST for anyone in need of relaxation--ask for Robert, he is THE BEST!
PROS: Inexpensive, Free Yoga Class, Professional Staff
Not only does their food taste so good that it makes you want to cry, but it is perfectly filling and you don't feel sick after eating it because it has the perfect combination of proteins, nutrients, carbs and vitamins. I order every night at work from them and then I order three times a day from them during the summertime when I am training for my ironman. Everything from their food, to their efficient and professional staff makes me love ordering from them. And don't you just love the costumes they wear when passing out fliers!
PROS: healthy, fast delivery, great food
This wonderful lady is absolutely FANTASTIC. I visited Gail, and I have not even one negative thing to say about her. Her place is really nice and private, and everything is just perfectly right. As soon as I went in, she sat me down and offered me lemon juice. We than starting talking about my diet and what to avoid in order to achieve a goodlooking skin. Afterwards, She took me to a private room where the peeling procedure took place, and even gave me a few tips for treating my skin throughout the entire day!
PROS: Inexpensive, Great Atmosphere, Extremely Helpful
