1. This painting is “called The Pilgrim, and it’s by a child. I got it at a garage sale in Kansas City. It looks like a Donald Bachelor.” On sale for $450.

2.I love vintage helmets; I used to ride dirt bikes as a kid, so I guess it’s a nostalgic thing for me. We got it on eBay.” $250.

3.We found that on the street. It looked like a Joseph Beuys. It doesn’t play, though. Not for sale— no one would want it!”

4.We found it at a flea market in London. It’s a turn-of-the-century umbrella. It might’ve cost us a few hundred dollars. It reminded me of Mary Poppins.” $900.

5.We sell ‘Your Ad Here’ space ($3,000 a month) as an indoor billboard to companies like HarperCollins. We thought it would be a funny way to subsidize the rent.”

6. “The big globe is from the boardroom of Cartier ($14,000, the highest-priced item in the store, which is why it hasn’t sold!). They all come from George Glazer, a specialist.”

7. “We had a show here—the bike as sculpture—and an artist, Benedict Radcliffe, made this one. I love the fluorescent combination of colors.” $3,200.

8. “ The stapler collection is from a friend of ours named J. P. Williams. He also collects run-over gloves from the street and photographs them.” $100 to $200.

9. “The T-shirts were handmade by Noah Britton. They’re used T-shirts with Sharpie-pen sayings on them. He didn’t want to sell them for more than $5, so we said, ‘Okay, we’ll get $2.50, you’ll get $2.50.’ ”
