What if Pop Art held a garage sale? The answer of what that would look like can be found tucked away on quiet Great Jones Street in Manhattan. Andy Spade (of Jack Spade fame) opened a shop, a hybrid really between an art gallery and a retail store, earlier this year. I finally stopped by the shop, Partners & Spade and walked away greatly amused by its offerings: an eccentric and often humorous collection of obscure bric-a-brac tucked away in drawers (scorpion lollipops) to relevant artifacts of our crazy times (Lehman Brothers branded onesies titled “Vulture Tchotchkes”).
I took some photos of a few items there that amused me.
