Since  1976, our antique and collectible shop has been tucked away on Eighteenth Street in the heart of the Chelsea area of New York City.

Originally named AUTHENTIQUES, we later expanded to AUTHENTIQUES PAST AND PRESENT when we decided to add a small section offering new items as well.

Color and condition play an important part in our selection of merchandise. Interesting and unique collectibles, often verging on the amusing and whimsical, grab the eye in our attractive,  well organized, floor to ceiling-packed space.

Among the vintage items offered are Ocean Liner Memorabilia, Presidential Items, 1939 and 1964 World's Fair Items, Vases, (McCoy,  USA, Abingdon),  Stemware, 1950's Lamps, Christmas  Ornaments, Beaded Fruit, Art Glass, (Murano, Italian Cased Glass, Blenko ), Cartoon Items, Salt and Peppers,   Pin-up and Girlie Items to list a few.
