Shops in SOHO

I hope you had a nice Fourth of July holiday, lovelies! Today, we resume window shopping around New York City. 

Today, we'll walk around SOHO {short for "South of Houston Street"}. It's known for its loft-like apartments...  

 ...cobble-stone streets and brand name boutiques. There are many, many shops and you can spend the entire afternoon here. I'll take you to the ones that inspire, encourage thoughtful browsing, and carry affordable merchandise that push forward our artsy-crafty pursuits. Here are the ones that I've lovingly mentioned in the past:

Here are a few more vibrant shops:

C Wonder is for the woman who isn't afraid of color. The items are trendy but not over-priced. I love how the boutique is divided into different sections: clothes/accessories in a boudoir interior {even the dressing room has a dramatic multi-paneled mirror}, and brightly-lit shelves in the homeware section.

They specialize in monogrammed items -- a gift to self or for that friend who's got everything. They also have a clearance section where you can get stationery, desk supplies, and dining pieces for less than $5.00! 

Papyrus, just across the street, has a sumptuous array of greeting cards and paper goods.

I am over the moon excited that Paper Source has opened in New York City! I first discovered this store in Chicago and visited its branches in Georgetown {Washington, DC}, Princeton {New Jersey} and Virginia Highland {Atlanta}...yes, I'm a fan. They have crafting supplies, beautiful gift wrap, greeting cards, books, journals and nostalgic gifts. They also offer regular crafting classes and in-store demonstrations.

While the Museum of Modern Art is located in Midtown Manhattan, there's a branch of the museum store in SOHO. Stop by to find intelligently-designed everyday items, art books, and even fashion accessories.

If you're savvy in the kitchen visit Sur La Table for cooking, baking, and entertaining supplies.  

The flagship store of Dean and Deluca is located in SOHO. Step in and have a quick bite or shop for ingredients, prepared food, baked goods, flowers, cooking equipment, and Dean and Deluca souvenirs.

I accidentally stumbled upon Bobby Berk Home and liked what I saw. It carries modern home furnishings like pop art, graphic pillows, scented candles, and furniture.

More SOHO shops tomorrow!
