New York Shopping Guide

Nolita/SoHo/Tribeca/Chinatown

Ina

No doubt about it: This is New York City's premier designer consignment store.

Industries Stationery

Everything here is arranged according to color, which makes its racks of pastel notebooks and hot pink and aqua Pantone business-card holders look like candy. We also love the sculptural aluminum tape dispensers and boxes of silver pencils (so lovely you won't want to sharpen them).

Legacy

One of those unerringly great boutiques that have been around forever (since 1978!), Legacy debuted in Soho before also arriving on Brooklyn's Atlantic Avenue. Owner Rita Brookoff arranges inspiring new labels next to an impeccably chosen lineup of vintage gowns and jackets (including pieces from marquee names like Lanvin and YSL). The two house collections—made from vintage fabrics—are worth checking out as well. 109 Thompson St. SOHO 212-966-4827; 362 Atlantic Ave. BOERUM HILL 718-403-0090, legacy-nyc.com

The Market NYC

Held inside a youth-center gymnasium that looks straight out of the '50s, this weekend-only craft market is a great place to discover rising local talent.

Michele Varian

Though it's technically in busy Soho, the slip of Crosby Street where Michele Varian's eight-year-old store lives is always calm and quiet. Beyond her own range of handworked throw pillows, she stocks an exquisite universe of meticulously chosen home accessories and jewelry. Ornate gold champagne flutes rest alongside jasmine-blossom-adorned rings and elaborately etched glass tumblers, making this one of the best gift resources in the city. 35 Crosby St. SOHO 212-226-1076, michelevarian.com

Min-k

This East Village-based boutique opened a roomier Nolita branch; now it has more room to give its hip clientele-on-a-budget what it loves: sweet pieces by little-known yet promising designers.
