Olde Good Things is part antique store, part salvage. They have everything from vases and doorknobs to bathtubs and door frames. They also have a new wood division that can supply you with beautiful siding and old wood floor planks. With locations all across the country, they are versed in acquiring beautiful pieces. Their prices might be a little higher than other salvage places, but you’re sure to find something wonderful.

I’ve never been to the actual store, but I always browse their stand at the Brooklyn Flea. They have a lot of really awesome pieces, like an old standing globe and funky modern bookshelves, but they lose points for the prices. You can find similar items for less at other vintage/salvage stores in the city.
The no show Goat!
In October last year I bought a garden sculpture at Olde Good Things, Bowery New York. A tin goat that I liked a lot. I paid them USD 400, which covered both the goat and the shipping. They had lots of experience in shipping internationally, they told me. But no goat came to Norway, and nothing happened when I called or emailed them. Only when I started posting messages about the missing goat on their Facebook page and in readers comments-fields on their web site, I heard from them. I January I was told that the shipping costs would be USD 800! So be careful if you shop there, and want your purchase shipped anywhere. You might end up goatless, like me.

Urban farming has been gaining popularity these days in NYC, but a Brooklyn-based company is taking the verdant practice to new heights--literally. Hidden away on a Johnson Avenue warehouse rooftop between Bushwick and East Williamsburg, Edenworks's custom-designed aquaponic growing system (a.k.a. Farmlab) is able to grow lush greens in a compact, 800-square-foot space. In stark contrast to the concrete jungle found outside, the indoor roof space is filled with a lush garden installed atop a tiered structure that features tanks full of tilapia fish.
