Today we went out browsing for shower surrounds. Always wanting to patronized local, independent businesses, we stopped at 2.
First we stopped at Lafayette Hardware (135 Lafayette St). They had a nice selection of paint but no surrounds. We tried to swing by Continental Trading & Hardware’s at 190 Ferry St. but, being early on a Sunday morning, they were closed. We headed to their main – and much larger – location at 400 Delancey St.
First impression: they have an excellent selection of pavers and exterior finishes. It’s a very large store. We were directed to the bath section for shower & tub surrounds. Found a couple corner shower set-ups but, alas, nothing we needed.
While we struck out on surrounds, we did find a few things I was positive were no longer made.
Mauve soap dish? Check.
But what’s this? You want to match your powder blue tub, you say?? But of course!
And clearly you’ll need the matching toilet paper holder.
And while you’re at it, why not throw in the powder blue bidet? It’ll keep you squeaky clean and you wouldn’t want to break up the set.
It’s ok; I know this is exactly what you were hunting high & low for. No need to thank me.
