John Derian Store – East Village


I was wandering in the East Village today and thought of the John Derian store, which I have been meaning to get to for ages. And lo and behold, it was right across the street from me! I am still floating from the experience. Such a visual abundance of beauty and imagery. Specializing in his own decoupage glassware, John Derian also carries antiques and vintage items from around the world. Moroccan poufs sit alongside vintage postcards and whimsical paper mache dolls. John Derian’s Dry Goods store (practically next door) carries imported textiles and linens from designers such as Lisa Corti and John Robshaw. And for the kids, what better way to learn about Natural History than through rich, vintage style images such as these? The John Derian store is located at 6 East 2nd Street in the East Village. You can also purchase his goods online at Ampersand.
