Maria Niforos has yet a new venture, one that will keep her in New York close to the grandchildren. She is opening a costume, lace and textile shop in the Showplace Antique and Design Center in New York City:
Maria Niforos, Antique Costume, Lace, Textiles
Gallery 226, Showplace Antique and Design Center
40 West 25th Street
New York, NY 10010
The formal opening of the shop is November 4th, and it has already been filmed as part of a piece on the Showplace Center for the program “A Taste of New York”. You can see the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBZSbLl8f34. The Showplace Center is open seven days a week, and Maria will usually be there on weekends or by appointment. Showplace hours are 8:30-5:30 weekends, and 10:00-6:00 Monday through Friday.
Maria sent a few photos – note the wonderful cabinet full of lace. She is currently in London gathering up her stock for the new shop.
