The bad thing about really good housewares is that they are typically super expensive. The story goes a little differently at, however. Brooklyn-based owner Rena Tom stocks her online shop with beautiful and unique wares from more than 30 international and local designers - and they're not ridiculously priced! She carries everything from clothing, jewelry, bags, and belts to delicate tea bowls, tabletop pieces, and paper goods.

I especially love a ceramic vase she carries, $26, that is tall and skinny and has a hole in the middle, making it look like it's giggling at you. is definitely a place to check out for some novel items!
