• The end of history New york
  • Since 1993, Stephen Saunders has been selling an expertly chosen collection of decorative studio glass and ceramics from the 1920s to the 1960s at his West Village gem, The End of History. Saunders refers to his wares as “jewelry for the home” and has arranged the store by color to make it easier for his clients, many of whom are interior decorators, to find what they need.

  • Kaas glassworks New york
  • While the other kids at high school were at the mall, Carol Kaas was out combing antiquing. So it’s no surprise that in 2003, after quitting her job as a lawyer, Carol opened Kaas GlassWorks where she sells her handmade, reverse-decoupage glass.

  • Leo design New york
  • The awning outside of Leo Design bears the slogan, “Handsome Gifts.” Indeed, this West Village shop has some rather attractive merchandise. Opened by menswear designer Kimo Jung in 1995, Leo Design is an ever so carefully curated store that somehow manages to be claustrophobic in a good way. There's definitely a lot of stuff in the relatively modest store space, but it's the kind of stuff you could spend a whole afternoon (or lifetime) looking… More info

  • Greenwich letterpress New york
  • It’s becoming less common to find families passing trade skills to multiple generations, yet sisters Beth Salvini and Amy Salvini-Swanson have defied this trend—and put a twist on a family tradition—when they opened Greenwich Letterpress in 2006. Printing has been in the Salvini family for three generations—even mom sells her wares in the shop—but what really sets Greenwich Letterpress apart is its artistic aesthetic combined with a crafty vibe… More info
