On my break from T-Party last week, we decided to spend an afternoon in Manhattan. We visited with my niece and also took a walk to some of my favorite shops. There are several stores in the city that are pure eye candy and I love to walk through them for inspiration alone. One of them is called Fishs Eddy.
When I'm at Fishs Eddy, I have the urge to get rid of all of my dishes and start fresh. This store, which has been around for twenty years, is filled with an ever changing array of restaurant quality dishes and glassware. Some vintage, some new, all wonderful.
Maybe it's because I grew up in the restaurant business, but I have an attraction to sturdy restaurant ware and hotel china. And Fishs Eddy is packed with that and much more; they have jadeite, American hand-pressed glass, airline flatware, and an amazing array of dinnerware. I even came across a collection of vintage head vases.
Though Fishs Eddy is having a 25% off store-wide sale, I didn't buy anything. I simply enjoyed the browsing and the inspiration.
