The Times Says I Made A Scene At The Antiques Garage
And I still do!
It's the place on West 25th Street where you can shop for tribal masks, old mirrors, and dolls made of seashells -- basically everything you need for the house.
But the clock is ticking on the place -- and even though the clock is gorgeous yet reasonably priced, it's still a harbinger of one more lost New York tradition.
In today's New York Times, an article remembers that:
"Ever since the designer Todd Oldham led the opening night party in 1994, where the model and performance artist Amanda Lepore, the Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, and Fred Schneider of the B-52s rubbed elbows and bought $80 monkey dolls and plaster statues of the Madonna, the space has fostered a scene."
I still have that statue -- she's in her cone bra!
