Collyer’s Mansion, gift shop announced on this blog in October, is holding a grand opening party tonight at 7 p.m. at the shop at 368 Stratford Road just off Cortelyou. The entire neighborhood is invited.
To pique your interest, Ben and Mauri sent over this picture from the inside of the store. As they said in October, we can expect ceramics, textiles, tableware, furniture, apothecary, ephemera, jewelry and quite a bit more. The store grew from the couple’s pastime of collecting handcrafted goods from around the world and Mauri’s experience working with vintage clothing. Consider interests piqued.
