Washington Street Shuffle: Midtown Authentic Moves Two Flights Up- Hoboken Robin has Got a new Perch


Consignment store Midtown Authentic has now moved upstairs at the same address of 728 Washington Street in Hoboken. Previously, this store was in the basement location and when a vacancy opened up on the second floor owner Rory Chadwick jumped on the chance to expand his retail space. The Boken.com met up with Rory yesterday and he was understandably tired from the big up two flights of stairs but was relieved that he was now basically settled in at the new location.

Keep in mind, Midtown Authentic is not just for the ladies anymore. They now have space for a men’s clothing section. It should be noted that  Modern Nails Salon below could make this area a one stop destination where you could send out your mail, make arrangements to travel to Cuba, get your nails done and pick up a Gucci or Louis Vuitton purse all on the same block. They are still unpacking a bit more but the store is taking shape. The new shelving looks nice and Rory Chadwick said it was from Ikea.  I might even pick up some for my home use down the line it looked so nice.

Owner Rory Chadwick in addition to his his store, is a part time columnist for TheBoken.com as well as magazine in town called h-Mag. He also moonlights as Batman’s sidekick Robin and has been involved in several charity fundraisers in the past. Here is wishing Midtown Authentic luck in the expanded location.

Photos of the new store location are below:

The Curious Case of the Missing Michelangela Sleigh in Hoboken

Here is an unfortunate development for a Hoboken store owner as reported by TheBoken’s very own Midtown Reporter Rory Chadwick. Talk about putting the bah in humbug whether or not the sleigh is missing due to an “accident” or was actually stolen. Read on…

Michelangela Sled Stolen in Hoboken, Have You Seen It?

Just the other day, Michelangela  possibly had their wooden sled stolen in front of their store.  Seen in the photo is the missing sled that is now missing.  Apparently someone either stole it or someone thought it was on sidewalk and likely being thrown away.  If you know who has the sled please call the store.  If it was an error and someone thought it was garbage charges will not be filed by the owners.

Ornament anyone? Michelangela in Hoboken has you covered

Tis’ the season to go shopping fa la la la la….. Walking Washington St today I couldn’t help but notice from the sidewalk the interior of Michelangela located at 330 Washington Street here in Hoboken. The storefront window is something almost as good as the Macy’s window.

Inside Michelangela you will find nearly 10,000 ornaments of all sorts ranging in price from just a few dollars and up. Even if not in the mood to shop a simple walk through of the store will put a lot of holiday spirit in you. With Christmas trees all over the place, snowflakes on the floor and visions of imaginary sugar plums dancing in your head, Michelangela is a must see this holiday season.

Easily a top contender for best display for the holidays this year, Michelangela is simply your one stop place for holiday needs this year. In addition to your holiday needs Michelangela offers shoppers vintage and restored furniture for your home or office. You can vist Michelangela on the web at www.michelangelafurniture.com.
