My friend Ryan, collector of industrial lamps and bones, invited me to the Pier Antiques Show on Saturday with the promise of it being a place, "generally a bit overpriced, but where I always find some treasure" (or something nice along those lines). Well, he came away with an incredible French fishing bag...and I left laden with this gator beauty, the little British guy and the wicker polo helmet (as mentioned earlier today). Lots of good English stuff to be had: I spied John Derian telling one shop owner: "If Ralph Lauren stops by, tell him to copy these pants for me." The guy said he'd pass it along.
(The GoldenEye chilled out on the tech annihilation -- selectively. I'm still in the hallway).
