Fair Folks & a Goat
We have fallen in love with a great, new concept shop tucked away amongst the brownstones near the Met and Guggenheim. This unique modern furniture and vintage clothing store first perked our interest with their quirky name, but Fair Folks & a Goat won us over with their great concept and unique way of business.
Located in a studio apartment on East 88th Street that is owned and was once occupied by owner Anthony Mazzei, it has been transformed into a store that resembles a lived in apartment. The main space is filled with a great selection of contemporary furniture but, unlike other furniture stores, they encourage their visitors to sit and enjoy the space and furniture. Mazzei and his partner, Aurora Stokowki, have added a vintage clothing aspect to the store, which is supplied by Texas-based Archive Vintage. Rather than being displayed on racks, all of the clothes are stored in the actual closets of this apartment, allowing you to almost feel like a child again searching through your mother’s amazing closet.
Access to Fair Folks & a Goat is though appointment only (firstname.lastname@example.org), but that does not mean you are going to break the bank purchasing pieces there. Furniture ranges from $120-$10,000, and clothing starts at as low as $30.
With plans to open a second location in a bed and breakfast in New Orleans, we have a feeling this intimate shopping experience will be a hit! Check them out in this great Racked article, or e-mail them for your own appointment. We know you will be as obsessed as we are!
