If you’ve waked up 1st Avenue in the East Village, you’ve likely walked past A Repeat Performance at 156 1st Ave before. They often have merchandise out on the sidewalk just outside their door.
You’ll find it all at this eclectic antiques shop in the heart of New York City’s East Village. Typewriters, musical instruments, lampshades, and furniture are some of our specialties. New items all the time.
We also offer rentals for theatre and movie sets, as well as a one-day decorating service using the items you already own. Private shopping upon request.
‘Eclectic’ doesn’t do the place justice. You’ll have to see for yourself.
What you may not have known:
Beyond being a favorite shop of many celebrities and local residents, A Repeat Performance also plays a significant role in supporting Ghar Sita Mutu - House with a Heart, a home for abandoned children and free training program for impoverished women in Nepal. Owner Beverly Bronson founded the charity in 2001 after she found two abandoned brothers on the streets of Kathmandu, Nepal. She splits her time between Nepal and New York City.
About Ghar Sita Mutu:
Ghar Sita Mutu is a charity that provides a home for abandoned children, a training center for destitute women, and an outreach program for needy families in Kathmandu, Nepal. This non-profit, NGO (Non-Govern-mental Organization) was founded by Beverly Bronson in 2001, when she found two children, Krishna and Babu aged five and two, huddled in front of a tin hut after being abandoned by their mother.
Since that time, Ghar Sita Mutu has built a facility that houses the children’s home and training center, and continues to expand its outreach every year under the leadership of Beverly who serves as director of the organization.
As one of the most impoverished countries in the world, Nepal has no government social safety net for its people, and a limited number of charities and non-profits are operating. With the help of our generous donors, we provide hope for a better future and the chance to live with dignity.
