NOSTYLGIA DIY::IN STORE SIGNS PART II

The finishing part of a DIY project is always the most important because the classic DIYer probably has a basement of unfinished projects, Nostylgia included. However, we sort of finished this one, at least this one sign that is. Hand painted by our new design intern, Stephanie and nailed to our wood with vintage looking upholstery nails, you can now find our new sign cleverly hanging on our first fire escape when you walk in. Now only 9000000000 more signs to go……

THE 1st NOSTYLGIA SEASONAL MURAL CONTEST WINNER IS…

We thank everyone for all the great entries that we recieved, making the decision a truly tough one. However, the 1st ever Nostylgia/Inwood Tea Bar Seasonal Mural Contest Winner is Maria Delgado Gambini. Congratulations!!! 

Work will begin on the wall this week with an official unveiling next month.

Thanks again to all our entrants. We are already looking forward to seeing even more entries for our Summer Contest coming soon.

The Nostylgia Library…

Over the years several interesting books have come and gone at Nostylgia and when taking in our robust atmosphere, they help to simplify the definition of Nostylgia and paint a vivid picture of all that is LIFESTYLGIA. Stop by to check out our latest addition to the Nostylgia Library, “A Gentleman’s Wardrobe” by Paul Keers. The perfect compliment to a Nostylgia Tea from The Inwood Tea Bar and Chess Lounge.

NOSTYLGIA DIY::IN STORE SIGNS::PART I

The New American Classic is built by hand like all classics should be and do it yourself projects are a regular thing at Nostylgia. Whether building, painting, or creating in any way, DIY is always option 1,2,and 3.

This weeks project is hand made in store signage for our many clothing and shoe displays,  a long overdue need at Nostylgia. So we finally decided to tackle this small project starting with an old 2×4 leftover from a previous DIY project. Step 2 was to cut it into 12″ peices on my balcony in Yonkers, then to stain and hang dry right in front of Nostylgia at 251 Dyckman, where our DIY projects always draw a crowd asking, “what the heck are you guys up to now”.

Get Suspended at Nostylgia…

Nostylgia fashion is born from utilitarian needs and is developed over time from the simple ideal that clothing, like any other tool, must work for you while you work doing whatever it is you do.  Pants can keep you dry and warm and offer pockets for convenience but without a means to keep them around your waist they’d simply trip you up. While a belt is the more common solution of the times, there is always more than one way to get a job done and for many years suspenders like these were the number one option for keeping your britches out of the ditches.  Nostylgia stocks a wide selection of vintage button on suspenders for both blue and white collar occasions. So keep those pants up, get suspended at Nostylgia, and continue to  live LIFESTYLGIA!
