Fishs Eddy sells American-made sturdy plates and mugs for every price point: from overstock items made for hotels and diners to special dishes that celebrate the New York City skyline, Brooklyn Bridge and brownstones, or even the Brooklyn accent (Cawffee, anyone?). Cynthia Rowley and Pantone have lines here too, but our top picks is the plain diner whites.
But what about that name?
Nah, this place didn't start off as a fish market, though we overheard some shoppers saying that. Fishs Eddy lifted the name from a small fishing town in the Catskill Mountains upstate.
The shop recently added a collection of American handpressed glass to the store. We heard that the line is doing very well and are interested to see how Fishs Eddy customers are using these intense colorful, retro chic pieces at home.

We first reviewed Fishs Eddy in 2004. Since then, they've closed their satellite locations uptown and in Brooklyn, but there's plenty of new finds to be discovered online and in their Union Square flagship. They even sell marbles.
