A Little Shop On A Corner
The photograph atop today's blog entry is a partial view of an awning that belongs to an exquisite little shop known as More & More Antiques. It is located on the southwest corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West Seventy-Eighth Street, which is on the Upper Westside in New York City.
I am thrilled; as well as humbled and honored; to announce that Steve Mohr, the sole proprietor of More & More Antiques has decided to feature my fauna-flora-insect themed postcards in his precious shop!
Each postcard has an image on it that has been included in the book, Words In Our Beak Volume One, which is book that is set in rooftop garden in NYC and the story is told from the perespctive of a female cardinal.
As you may recall, dear reader, I featured images of these particular postcards in a prior post here on Blogger and they are on my web-site, which was designed by Chris Deatherage.
In any event, Steve Mohr's place has been there for over twenty-five years. Mohr's vast knowedge of antiques, coupled with an excellent eye for spotting unusual and interesting collectible pieces, guarantees a fun experience to anyone who goes there.
In addition to offering unique collectibles, More & More Antiques has wonderful items for the home, especially for the various holidays. The way in which the shop's owner, Steve Mohr, displays them is magical! I confess that his talent in positioning the whimsical figurines (which he sells during the various holiday seasons) has inspired a number of the "stories" that I've written for hometalk.
Steve's displays, as well as the helpfulness of Nancy Nelson Mancini (who works there), have been the inspiration (whenever figurines are involved) for entries here on Blogger (as well as tumblr and Facebook) that have to do with New Year's, Three Kings Day, Valentine's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and any patriotic holiday.
If you find yourself in NYC, dear reader, I encourage you to visit More & More Antiques (at 378 Amsterdam Avenue) to check out my postcards and other items in his amazing store! What a treat for me it is to have my cards represented in such a magnificent place!
