when it comes to beautiful stores, you must consider merci. everything from the entryway courtyard to the visual displays, from the products sold to the cafe and bookstore, merci is delightful. now add to all of that, the fact that the proceeds go to various charities, and you have yourself a store worth mentioning.
its no wonder that the gap is choosing to partner with merci in opening up a month long concept store. there is a new trend with these various pop-up shops, in which stores are temporarily switching merchandise with other stores, bringing a new shopping experience to the customer.
unfortunately i wont be in new york to go to the merci-gap store (september 10th to october 4th, adjacent to gap’s flagship at 680 fifth avenue, at the corner of 54th st) but i’m sure that i will find myself visiting merci quite a bit while i’m here.

i am constantly inspired by images that tell a story, or at the very least, let you know that there is one. i love these photographs shown on the blog 2 or 3 things i know, of guiseppe logan.

oh the time and effort that goes into each of these wall murals on the sides of very very very tall buildings. whenever i see these people, i have the same reaction as when i would see the window cleaners washing the windows of my old office building…on the 25th floor.
if they want to go through this much trouble, i will take the time to look.

i think the best way to find a great guide book for any city, is to ask someone who already lives there.
when i was still in new york, i came across this book, and something about it made me pick it up and flip through its pages.
what i found was a list of all of my favorite things to do, as well as some new and interesting recommendations.

this brooklyn based shoppe sells a variety of soap, this one being the most enticing (for me). it contains seaweed and sea salt for exfoliation, and is scented with rosemary.
did i mention they make floral arrangements as well? so not 1.800.flowers…

if you’re looking for something to do one weekend, and you feel like making a bike, head over to the bamboo bike studio in brooklyn. when you walk in on saturday, you will ride out on a sustainable bamboo bicycle on sunday (that you have made under the guidance and supervision of their knowledgeable staff).
does it get any greener?
