New Stone Age
If you're a design junkie like I am, West 3rd street in Mid City West is your playground. My favorite stores are:
New Stone Age: Stepping into New Stone Age feels like you just walked into a science lab. From moth drawn mugs to porcelain phrenology busts, the collection is refined modern gothic at its best.
Plastica: Everything plastic, from rubber boots to lawn mats to planters!
OK Store: A designer's must-see. OK Store is the kind of store that you want everything inside of it--jewelry, ceramics and books are their specialties.
