Nestled in the East Village, we passed Waldorf Hysteria and had to stop. The pic is snapped from our cell phone and all the goods on the street were interesting vintage finds. The conversation inside went something like this:
Hipster - "I want to get a price on a table outside."
Owner (barely moving) - "Which one?" (there are many outside)
Hipster - "The brown one."
Owner - "Brown one? Don't know that one." (barely moving)
Hipster - "It's right out there."
Owner - "Really, let me see." (now moving slowly)
Aside from the perfect East Village vibe, Waldorf Hysteria is a refreshing detour from the Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, DWR mafia. If you know more, please comment.
