Howdy, Partner
Pop-Art Flea Market on Great Jones

Every once in a while a place opens up and we have no idea what the f*** it is. But we like it. And that's what really counts.

Welcome to Partners & Spade, Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti's new crazyspace and pop-art flea market on Great Jones.
 
The first sign that things may have gone off the deep end a bit are the 50 finches you'll notice twittering about in the storefront window. But that's just scratching the surface... Walking in you'll feel as if you've entered a thinkspace at the intersection of Julian Schnabel's studio and Pee-wee's playhouse.
 
The walls and drawers are lined with all manner of tchotchkes: souvenirs from the state of Arizona in one drawer, old smut (pre-dating your dad's secret stash) in another, rare 1860s photographs on the back wall and a glass case full of Lehman Brothers schwag. Everything is for sale, including "Impulse Buys" like cigarettes and the NY Post, which require you to climb a ladder to retrieve them from an out-of-reach shelf.
 
But if you're after something a little more...bespoke, Anthony and Andy are offering themselves up for hire...for just about anything. Want a finch aviary of your own? No problem. Wish you had a giant tromp l'oeil fireplace in your bedroom? They'll paint it for you so you can stay mentally warm this winter.

And if you're in the market for a little ego boost, they'll make you a "post confidence trophy," backdated for anything you always wished you were good at.
