Fishs Eddy


Named after a small town upstate, Fishs Eddy is Manhattan’s most popular place to find funky vintage flatware. From the sub-basements of New York City’s Bowery (also once known as the restaurant supply district) were endless unwanted dishes dating back to the 1900s. These were more than just dishes, they were pieces of historical significance. Fishs Eddy excavated all of it - decorated and crested cups, creamers, gravy boats, bullion cups, butter, plates, and more. Soon after, they started designing their own patterns on the same beautiful ”ware” they were finding: made in America, 100% vitrified, sturdy, durable, and made with LOVE from places like Buffalo, New York, and Newell, West Virginia! Located on the corner of West 19th and Broadway.
