I was recently having brunch with a friend of mine who was wearing a simple ring above her knuckle. I’d seen it before, but for some reason this time I couldn’t get it out of my head. Fast forward one week – I was window shopping in my favorite section of the east village for vintage and unique pieces (7th and 9th Streets between 1st and 2nd Avenues) when I noticed a new(ish) jewelry store called Verameat. I popped in and discovered this little ditty that was (very) reasonably priced at $20. It’s gold-plated brass so I’m not sure how long it will hold up, but so far so good!
I’ve already decided that I will have a bar cart in my next apartment. It seems like a classy way to display booze – along with old fashioned champagne glasses and a mint julep cup full of flowers.
Here is a taste of the different looks I’ll be considering.
I will most likely be doing some sort of DIY version or flea market/antique look in gold, bronze, silver or chrome.
If I were to buy it new, it would probably be similar to one of the two below. The cart directly below looks a lot like the Restoration Hardware “Hanover Bar Cart” that is no longer available (unfortch!).
Common bar cart accessories (besides alcohol, natch) are trays, candles, decanters, ice buckets, glasses and mixers.
