The day has come! The countdown has begun! And our move is underway! With nearly eighty years worth of quirky and historical tchotchkes, treasures, and furnishings in tow, MOSCOT Orchard Street has begun crossing Delancey from 118 Orchard to 108 Orchard.
Yesterday, Day 1…was not a day for the faint of heart. Our Shop's kluged together wall showcase, which generation after generation of Moscots added to over the years until it grew to its present day, GIANT, room-sized self was gingerly taken apart, piece by delicate piece, by a team of professional disassemblers - who all the while scratched their heads wondering if it would crumble to pieces. Then the hundreds of pieces were carried across Delancey (no jaywalking with this monster) to its new home at 108, where the (now) reassemblers miraculously put the thing back together - and man oh man…it's never looked better! Whoop!
Check out these photos from the disassembly/reassembly - including the secret door we found behind the monster wall showcase when we took it apart! And spoiler alert - sneak peak of the new shop!
Nine days and counting until 108 opens on May 22!
Our wall showcase before...
Behind the wall showcase...a secret door? Secret passage?
Nope, no jaywalking for us!
Success! Its new home at 108 Orchard!
