Paul Gerben’s Pickers Cafe pop up at Openhouse Gallery 19 Kenmare

New York-based photographer and creative director Paul Gerben has been published in Time Out New York, People, InStyle and created brand campaigns for MTV, Donald Trump, Newsweek and Will Smith. Now, for the first time, he’s hosting a pop up. The Pickers Cafe, on the corner of Elizabeth and Kenmare in Nolita, features antiques, paintings, vintage prints and more. It’s a cafe with no food but great taste, and Gerben says the pop up is inspired by TV shows like American Pickers + Picker Sisters.

Gerben and his Picker Cafe partner Paul Whittle explored estate sales, garage sales and abandoned farms throughout upstate New York, Long Island, Ohio, Connecticut and Vermont to get their hands on all the unique wares. Prices range from $25 to $20,000 and include a Roy Lichtenstein print, old-school scale. soap holders, jugs and jars. “I pick items I personally love that have tons of character and style,” Gerben says.

If you’ve got character and style, the Pickers Cafe pop up will be a perfect match.
