Olde Good Things

The Bowery location of this antique and salvaged-goods minichain is near Anderson’s office, so she “wanders there whenever I can,” she says. “It’s perfectly curated and full of one-of-a-kind items.”
250 Elizabeth St between Houston and Prince Sts (212-741-0455, hausinterior.com)
Anderson hits up this homewares boutique for its selection of up-and-coming labels, such as Farmhouse Pottery (farmhousepottery.com) and Bushwick rug designer Aelfie (aelfie.com). “It’s a good spot for unique gifts,” she says.
202 E 29th St between Second and Third Aves (212-545-1447, nuthousehardware.com)
This hardware store is Anderson’s go-to spot for paint, tools and other DIY supplies. “It’s open 24 hours a day, which is great because I feel like most of my projects start at 1am,” she says. “It has anything you’ll ever need at pretty good prices.”
