Fishs Eddy

When it comes to unique souvenirs and kitchenwares, Fishs Eddy is my favourite store. If you are looking for something thats is 100% New York and more special than the usual tourist stuff, this is the shop.

You can bring home mismatched vintage china, dishtowels with maps of Brooklyn, matchboxes with unusual New York landmarks, mugs with subway tiles, zippered pouches that have Teddy Roosevelt high-fiving a bear or other kitschy kitchenwares.

The store is decorated with antique furniture and vintage oil portraits. This perfectly showcases their beautiful, quirky, and brilliantly useful kitchen ware. The oil portraits are all authentically vintage and were found at various flea markets, thrift shops, and garage sales around the country.

Shopping in New York gets so much more fun when you can do it in a super nice apartment in SoHo.

Welcome to The Apartment by The Line.

The Line is an online boutique launched by a collective of creatives that wanted to create a unique shopping experience.

Inside the shop-able apartment, everything from the Proenza Schouler and JW Anderson pieces hanging in the walk-in closet (which dreams are made of) to the Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs and luxurious beauty products displayed sparingly in the bathroom can be purchased – even the pieces you might see on the wall from Robert Mapplethorpe are up for grabs. Also the closet is for sale.

Bag all

Bag-all, giving is easy

Yeah! Do something for the environment – in style! Buy reusable cotton gift bags from Bag-all.

The owner and creator of Bag-all is Swedish Jennifer Jansch, a mother of three and a stylist for over 20 years. She design, manufacture and sell reusable fabric gift bags and travel/organizing bags.

Why did you move to New York?
I lived in New York most of the 90-ies. When I met my husband I moved back to Sweden for 10 years. We moved back with our three children 2011. The reason: because I love New York! It fits my personality perfectly. I can be creative and be myself 100% in New York

Mention 3 of your favourite places in New York?
1. The Nolita area east of Soho. This is where I have my shop. I particularly like Mulberry Street, Mott Street and Elizabeth Street between Prince and Houston. Full with little independent shops like mine and great restaurants.
2. Central Park any time of year!
3. Hudson River park. A park that runs along the Hudson river on the West side of Manhattan. You can walk, ride your bike or run.

What do you love to do in New York in your free time?
Walk all over. We don’t own a car. There is always something amazing to look at!

Mention something weird that you’ve experienced in New York
Freaky weather. Sometimes it rains so much you would think someone was throwing buckets of water off the tops of the buildings. I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.

What do you like best about New York?
The people. Most people are just so friendly and happy!

Moscot

Moscot – Vintage Eyewear

Moscot

Moscot began as a small pushcart on Orchard Street nearly 100 years ago that was run by Harvey’s great-grandfather Hyman Moscot. Today there are three outlets in the city, the newest of which opened this year in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood.  Moscot unveils four new ready-to-wear collections per year, and about half of the frames are reinvented classics.
Their iconic eyewear includes The MOSCOT Originals, MOSCOT Spirit, and MOSCOT Sun Collections.

The newly-made frames are based on styles from the Moscot archives from the 1930’s-1970’s, retaining all of the authenticity of the original frame style right down to real glass lenses in their sunglasses, traditional hardware, and lens colors that precisely duplicate the true old school colors first fabricated by the company in the 1940’s.
