Hoboken Antiques

Delicate bone-china teacups and saucers painted with flowers are a steal here (about $18 per set). The store is tiny, so take the time to check out the selection of silver platters and costume jewelry as well.

Homeslice

Everything here cultivates a cool, modern aesthetic: White votive holders shaped like anemones, oversize coffee-table books, gem-studded Alexis Bittar acrylic necklaces, and art deco-inspired Lafco soaps round out the mix.

Platform Soul

Brand-new and devoted exclusively to shoes, this spot (from the owners of nearby shop Air Studios) has a gallery-like vibe. Striped Claudia Ciuti wedges, Jill Stuart suede stilettos, and Sigerson Morrison flats dot the walls like mini pieces of art.

Century 21

moved from harlem section of nyc

The newest branch of this bargain hunter's paradise is so much better than its Manhattan flagship: It's less claustrophobic and crowded, the excellent merchandise isn't picked over, and, thankfully, the dressing rooms are private (the NYC location has communal changing areas).
