Grown-Up Dishware With a Touch of Whimsy at Fishs Eddy

Grown-Up Dishware With a Touch of Whimsy at Fishs Eddy

Eventually, we all have to grow up. Yes, you should act with grace and civility, but what I mean is, at some point, you should live like an adult—throw away the beanbag chair; plastic storage bins, which have been passing as dressers; and posters that once hung in your dorm room and get real furniture, artwork, etc. In addition, you should retire the set of dishware your parents gave you before college, along with the random pieces you’ve collected over the years, and opt for a nice, matching set of dishes and glassware. I’ll admit, I’m 30 years old and a little late to the game, but recently I decided it was time to up my dishware game. I wanted something quirky and unpretentious, so I took a trip to Fishs Eddy, a shop near Union Square that carries dinnerware, glassware, flatware, serveware and sturdyware. The large shop, which hugs the corner of 19th Street and Broadway, resembles a rustic barn—complete with a worn wooden floor and large wooden barrels and cupboards that housed colorful plates, mugs, saucers and more. The store also carries whimsical glass storage containers, vintage china and dishes for pets at varying price points. I can proudly say I settled for grown-up furnishings a few years ago, but after my trip to Fishs Eddy, I am well on my way to completing my transition to adulthood.
