ABC Carpet and Home - New York City, late 1990s

The Sex and the City gals spent much of their time perusing the colossally over-priced but admittedly innovative home department store, ABC Carpet and Home. If and when you get over the shock of the prices, I'd hightail it uptown to the Museum of the City of New York to see the dollhouse from which the picture on this bag is taken. 

I'm not quite as crazy about the bag below. It's a little Natalie Merchant for me.

  2. when ABC first opened, they had a thick bag that had 3/4" fabric handles and the bag was the color of the paper that butchers used to use.In addition, they used a unique tissue paper with fine-line drawings in the style of French fifties furniture.
