Despite the cold that had descended on Washington Square Park Monday evening, a half dozen activists were clearly feeling The Bern. Their task: get Democrats registered to vote in New York’s April primary — hopefully for Bernie Sanders, their feisty man of the people.
Last night, Adam Green of the Moldy Peaches came together with other local artists and designers for the opening night of the Deep End Club, Tennessee Thomas’s new collaborative creative space and cool-kid hangout (and store!) next to a Repeat Performance.
A Repeat Performance could certainly use a little extra space. The beloved East Village antique shop is practically bursting at the seams, overflowing with decades-worth of ephemera collected by co-owners Sharon Jane Smith and Beverley Bronson. Costume jewelry spills over on to the racks of vintage clothing, brightly colored felt hand-puppets overlook a vintage surfboard, while rows of leather satchels vie for space amidst one of the world’s most eclectic lamp collections.
