Lower East Side #5 – bloodline nyc: objects for the home and life

bloodline nyc

A beautiful Saturday – all sun and blue sky – a long walk, and another Lower East Side find.  This time it’s a lovely little shop carrying “objects for the home and life.”  It’s called bloodline nyc.  And, if you’re looking for a wedding gift, or housewarming present, or perhaps a little something special for yourself, then this is the place for you.

Artfully displayed in the compact space, you’ll find Danish modern furniture, Turkish towels, Scottish scarves, exquisite vintage glassware and ceramics, and interesting antiques oddities, presented alongside sleek canvas totes, the softest cashmere hats, and fragrant French soaps.

There are two proprietors, Marie Roldan and Peggy Usamanont.  I’ve been to bloodline twice, and both times  I met up Marie.  In addition to her in-depth knowledge of every item in the shop, she is wealth of information when it comes to all things Lower-East-Side, especially where to eat.  When  you visit, make sure it ask for her picks.

“bloodline”: it matters not which race, color, creed or our financial situation we are born into – we all have a bloodline – and, it tells of the generational trip an item makes before it gets to the store.

Happy shopping!
