I didn't find enough words to describe this place... I just walked in astonished, amazed by the colors, the display, the choices available. A dream for every chef, kitchen owner or restaurateur. Fishs Eddy is where everyone should come and buy their restaurant's equipment if they want to open a restaurant. Check out the beautiful photos and enjoy this little piece of heaven.
With its iconic ceramic hand statuettes on shelves by the entrance and twinkling strings of red lights, Fishs Eddy, a 4,000-square-foot home goods emporium named for a quaint town in the Catskills, remains as hip and quirky as the day it opened in 1985 near Gramercy Park in New York City.
The store is packed with artfully stacked piles of plates, vintage salt-and-pepper shakers and creamers, flatware and glassware. Many of the cheeky patterns are designed by celebrity partners, including fashion designers Cynthia Rowley and Todd Oldham, noted cartoonist Roz Chast, and comedian and actress Amy Sedaris.
It’s this just-right blend of folksy general store and urban edginess (hand-drawn checkerboard plates sit near a table featuring “Brooklynese” mugs emblazoned with cawffee) that enabled Fishs Eddy to reach $9 million in sales in 2014. The brand resonates with NYC locals, tourists and out-of-towners—online sales in the first quarter of 2014 were up 20 percent over the same period the previous year.
“There’s something magical about Fishs Eddy’s mix of fresh, topical design motifs that aren’t too serious, combined with the quality and familiarity of their nostalgic silhouettes,” says Jesse James, founder and creative director of Aesthetic Movement. “Others have imitated that aesthetic, but the truth is that they created it.” Entrepreneur.com
