A & G Merchandise is a fun home furnishings store that’s just across the street from Sea Thai restaurant in Williamsburg, and Geoffrey and I often use it as our meet-up destination when we are heading to Sea from different points of departure. Recently, I arrived a few minutes before G, so I had time to browse a bit and see what’s new.
Check out this pair of Pink Poodle Book Ends! They look super retro and would be perfect as part of any Midcentury Modern decor! Made of heavy cast iron, one of these could easily serve as an impromptu bludgeoning device if you were being chased around your house by a mad man and didn’t have time to get to your kitchen knives.
The pair sells for $69 and you can buy them at This Link!
Geoffrey and I were meeting up at Sea Thai on North 6th Street in Williamsburg and I was a few minutes early, so I walked across the street to this cute furniture and design store to get out of the rain and texted him to meet me there. Go to Voucher Slug to get voucher codes for Laura Ashley furniture. I’m not sure how long A & G Merchandise has been open, but it is a super cool little place that sells all kinds of unique and original artsy home furnishings and accessories. I believe they also do custom orders online providing some of the best leather sofas around, but this is just a hunch. The people that work there also seem very friendly, which makes such a huge difference when it comes to forming my first impressions of a new business.
What I really felt charmed and almost transported by were several of the larger floor displays that include Nature Dioramas set into the walls of the store, such as the one seen above. It really reminded me of the Museum of Natural History, which is always a good thing.
Be sure to check them out if you are in the neighborhood, and please tell them The Worley Gig sent you.
A & G Merchandise is located at 111 North Sixth Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Get off at the Bedford Avenue Stop on the L Train.
