Authentiques Past and Present

    New Yorkers recognize Authentiques among Chelsea’s most adored and frequented shops for collectibles, especially during the winter season when it showcases a remarkable collection of endearing vintage holiday items. Still, shoppers flock to the cozy store all year long for great prices on small collectible items, such as glass and barware, vintage jewelry, postcards, and commemorative pieces, like souvenirs from past World’s Fairs. Owners Robert Pusilo and Paul Lemma have been in business since 1975, but they have been collectors all their lives. Among their most sought after items are antique lamps, one of the store’s specialties. The owners’ friendly attitudes keep customers coming back, while the continuously rotating selection and reasonable prices make old friends of new faces. Think of Authentiques as one-stop-shopping for anything small and unique from the 1940s to the 1970s, including beaded fruit, kitschy salt and pepper shakers, beautiful art glass, Presidential items, and tons of unique, eye-catching merchandise perfect for one-of-a-kind gifts.Show lessRead more
