I should Have Bought it (them)

March 6, 2012

My favorite home store in New York is (wait for it)…  Nest at 172 9th Street.  They carry Ryan Studio, Dransfield and Ross Oly, Bungalow 5 and many other great vendors.  But the shop is more than a bunch of great vendors, it’s edited down to the esential oil of the puryever, the shop has a clear identity.  I could shop with my eyes closed and walk out of there so happy, its really all that good!  These candlesticks were on their wall last time I was in, they are vintage and only now that I’m home from New York, I’m wishing I had bought them.  Next timer you are in NYC, check them out.

    Surely they have a phone number and the ability to ship….

    These candleholders are made of Pierre Forsell for the Swedish company Skultuna. Made in the 70s I think. Take a look at http://www.tradera.com. (Tradera is a Swedish auction site like ebay). There, they usually go for around $ 40 for a pair. 😉

      I’ll have to look at a currency converter and get a shipping estimate for them but THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

    You’re welcome .. $ 1 is approximately SEK 7. (Swedish crowns). And they are certainly less expensive to buy at http://www.tradera.com than in NY, shipping included. 😉
