Antiqueria Tribeca Is Closing After 17 Years

After 17 years on Duane Street, Marion and Peter Feig have decided to close their shop, Antiqueria Tribeca, to focus on online sales. This is disappointing news for anyone who likes Art Deco antiques and/or the Feigs. (The two are inseparable to me.) The bright side is a big sale, on now, with deep discounts and stock replenishment till the shop closes before Christmas.

If you haven’t read the Spotlight Q&A from last year, you should. (It’s the source of the photo above, by Claudine Williams.) And here’s a comment from Lisa:

I stumbled upon Antiqueria Tribeca in 2000 as I went in the wrong direction on Duane Street looking for an address. This happy accident led to a 16-year relationship with the Feigs and their wonderful store. That day in 2000, I stepped out onto the sidewalk and called my husband. “You have to come down here to see this beautiful sideboard for our new apartment,” I said excitedly. We purchased the sideboard that day, and in the ensuing years a dining table and chairs, an exceptional Art Deco bar, an etagere, coffee table, a few side tables, an armoire, a Biedermeier cabinet, several arm chairs…you get the idea! Marion’s taste is flawless, and now visiting their store is like going to visit old friends.
