Here’s a story to put a smile on your face. An elderly gentleman (in the truest sense of the word) by the name of Anthony Pisano owns a curious little vintage shop in the back streets of Manhattan…..at least everyone thinks it’s a shop. It’s brimming with a kaleidoscope of treasures, collectibles, knickknacks, trinkets and vintage items – all safely guarded and watched over by his lifelong friend and resident cat. But it turns out that nothing inside is for sale and that the shop itself, is merely his home which he invites people into so that they can explore and put their curiosity at ease. Here’s what the film-makers say about the entire experience:
"On an unseasonably warm November night in Manhattan on our way to get ice cream, we stumbled upon what appeared to be a vintage shop, brightly lit display window and all. As we began to walk in, a man sitting out front warned us that we were welcome to explore. Our interests piqued, we began to browse through the collections the man out front had built throughout his life. This is a story of a man and his home."
