Received this email from a reader awhile back and realized I never posted it: I did a little walking around in the rain today and came across an amazing store of antiques - full of quality RESTORED antiques. I spent some time talking to the owner, a very nice man, Ken. He's been in Clinton Hill/Bed Stuy for a long time but doesn't advertise. He certainly had some beautiful pieces and very fairly priced (a tall 5 drawer, curved front, oak dresser - $300!).
Just wanted to point out another resource! -g
Mercantile Gallery 1055 Fulton Street (Near Bedford)
Google street view shows them closed, but it's not clear if they were just closed at that time.
Have you been? How's the selection?
