My mother found out early in her life that she had an “eye” for antiques and a passion for treasure hunting and decorating. Ever since my brother and I were babies she took us antiquing almost daily. Our home was always filled with her unusual and exciting acquisitions. The ones no longer used were stored in the attic. The attic “goodies” accumulated over time to the point where it became impossible to climb the stairs. It was then we decided to clean out “Nana’s Attic”.
We rented a store on Main Street in Tuckahoe for two weeks. It did so well that we took it for another, than another... Then we expanded to the adjoining store. By this time people were bringing us their family heirlooms. We told mom that she would not have to go shopping anymore. But, of course, you know that didn’t work. The treasures kept rolling in.
The next year we moved to Scarsdale and purchased the building at 414 Central Park Avenue, taking with us the original “NANAS ATTIC” sign made by my brother Brad when he was only fifteen years old. Thirty years later, the sign still hangs on our building, on its way to becoming an “antique” itself .
Oh yea, by the way, mom’s name is really “Nana”.
Nana's Attic is often referred to as "the most unique
store in Westchester --- perhaps the world!". A feature story in the
Gannett newspapers read: "Nana's Attic -- Yesterdays Treasures at
Yesterdays Prices". A New York Times Article referred to " people
falling over each other and the collectibles, antiques and new art
items .... packed into two small rooms." A Journal News ad read "Nana's
Attic" is like a sausage casing that somehow got stuffed
twice on the filling line and looks like it's ready to explode at any
