I’m off to New York in the summer and I’m dying to visit this place – mainly because of its wonderfully Gothic sounding name, but also because of its similarity to a Natural History Museum exhibit – with its cabinets full of glittering ancient objects and furniture that look like archeological artifacts.
Erie Basin is a small shop in Brooklyn specializing in on-trend 19th century jewellery and objects. With names like, ‘1900s Edwardian Mississippi River Pearl Necklace’ [last image] each piece really resonates with character and history.
