Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Obscure Antiques certainly carries around what admirers of the macabre are ideally looking for. More of a miniature museum than a market.

    Very beautiful, modestly priced treasures. Loved it! Had beautiful Easter decorations and other things. Bought a beautiful jeweled hand bag. The only difficulty would be over spending as it was so hard to not purchase so many lovely things.

    Experienced purveyors of better antiques. Find items not seen in most antique stores.
    If you are a true lover of truly fine items you will be very pleased with their selection.

    I first discovered Kentshire Galleries in the late 1980's whilst shopping in Bergdorf Goodman in New York. At this time they had a small boutique within the store which featured a tempting selection of antique jewellery. On one occasion I happened to meet one of the owners who introduced me to the Greenwich village location. Here, on East 12th Street, in an impressive building, Kentshire has eight floors dedicated to a large collection of antique furniture, accessories for the home and of course, antique jewellery. I love browsing to discover what new pieces have joined the galleries; there is no pressure to buy, which creates a pleasant atmosphere. I am not their best customer, having only purchased a couple of treasured items of jewellery but their warm welcome always makes me want to return.

    If you like collecting or just looking at signs and other assorted items that would hav been found in mechanics workshops and garages dating from approx 1950s and later, then this place is worth a look when you visit New York. This is one of those places you can spend an hour or more and if prepared to 'dig' find sonethng you think is worth having. Word of warning here, this may not happen until your 3rd or more trip around the building. Friendly staff at main counter who will have a chat without being pushy about making a purchase.

    The New York diamond district is a little overwhelming, but at Gray & Davis I felt like I was tucked away in a little sanctuary. It was possibly the best shopping experience I have ever had - no pressure, lots of options (but not too much choice, as everything I said got taken in and so each ring already felt selected for me), friendly and encouraging service. For me it was important to buy a ring that had already stood the test of time, was something that I loved and would want to wear forever rather than any particular carat or cut, and importantly, was second hand, so that I wasn't feeding the ethically dubious diamond market first hand. I honestly couldn't have asked for better, and I cant stop looking at my beautiful antique ring. Also - they got my ring resized in less than 24 hours so that I could have it on by the flight home to London and make our beautiful NY engagement feel 'real'!!

    Thanks so much for having us!

    You will have a great time oohing and aahing over vintage glassware and loads of Christmas ornaments. It’s a candy shop for nostalgic adults. It’s a resource place for vintage Christmas. It’s heaven for someone who appreciates knowledgeable sales staff who are friendly and gracious.

    Dark colour and it looks like something from a Batman movie. I like the tones and windows. Interesting!
