The Magical Ephemera of New York City\'s Biggest Prop House

Imagine a place where film & television producers could rent thrones for their medieval sets, top hats for their 19th-century character actors, and fake squirrels for scenes of nature in NYC - this wonderland exists, and all in a Long Island City warehouse!

Eclectic / Encore Props, New York City's largest collections of antiques, furniture, and accessories for rent on the East Coast.

Eclectic / Encore Props' 95,000 sqqure foot space was once a former Pepsi Cola factory!

Eclectic / Encore Props' founder went from only having $175 in her pocket to running one of the largest prop companies on the East Coast. Three-story facility contains props in dozens of categories including Sports & Weapons, Toys, Diner, and Juke Boxes. The comprehensive cataloging system keeps track of over one million props. The company services thousands of New York theater, film, and TV productions!
