Andes, New York & Kabinett & Kammer Written Up In Shopping Confidential By Yale Breslin

“I love going upstate to Bovina, where my friend Christine’s parents have a place, and a trip there is never complete without a little shopping excursion in the town of Andes.

In fact, every time I come back to the city, there is one store in particular, called Kabinett and Kammer, that I’m always thinking about. You know, planning the next trip to see what new treasures they’ll put out and clearing space in my apartment for some of those new things, etc. Unfortunately, Bovina is about 3 hours away, and because of our busy schedules, we don’t really get there as often as we’d like, so you can imagine how I felt when they recently opened a space in the East Village, just a few blocks away from John Derian.”

Walking into the store gives me so much visual inspiration, and though it’s filled with so many things, it never seems cluttered like a lot of antique shops do.
