The Neue Galerie gift shop, because Weiner Werkstatte never goes out of style. The shop is just as incredible as the museum itself.

  • Hi Kevin, thank you for these two interesting posts love your choices. Definitely when in New York will visit them.

  • Calvin Klein is truly awesome - the master of minimalism. The home products are wonderful for anyone who loves modern, clean, and spare.

  • Hi Kevin
    I really like it when you, Martha or the crafters tell us about the great shops in NYC. I was very lucky to be in NYC last December and attended Martha's show on the 6th. It was a fab experience and I got to ask Martha a question at the end of the show. I asked if someone from MSLO could make a " walking tour" of NYC that included all the shopaholic places you go to. I follow all your blogs and I had a list of shops to go to. However not being from NY ( I live in NZ) I found it difficult to navigate my way around and work out where the shops were and plan the time to get to them etc. I spoke to Prof Figgy and Hosanna at a craft fair and discussed this with them as well. They too thought it would be a good idea. As a tourist our time in a city while on holiday is restricted and we don't have the luxury of being able to wander aimlessly around looking for the shops. You have a very big city and it takes a while to get from one area to another. I think Penn Station would be a good starting point for each tour and you could do one area at a time. I'm sure you would get a lot of support from the businesses you would be promoting. You could even do it as a fundraiser with selling the tour maps...just an idea.

    Anyway I' sure there are lots of Martha fans out there who would appreciate this idea. I did manage to get to the shops that I had wanted to get to (Tinsel Trading, M& J Trims, Anthropolgie, Lion Brand and Purl). But I'm sure I missed out on a lot that I didn't realize we're close by. If you need anymore ideas or someone to do it, I would love to come back!

    P.S. I got to see Liz Taylor's exhibition and the Faberge eggs thanks to reading your blog while I was there. Totally awesome and made my trip so much more wonderful. Thank you.
