New York City is a wonderland when it comes to shopping excursions, with almost every corner of the city offering a different experience. Ela Orosova, concierge at Smyth - A Thompson Hotel, has several picks when it comes to unique shops in Tribeca and Greenwich Village. At Tribeca’s Working Class Emporium, you will an eclectic mix of merchandise—from a postcard and scented soap, to antique perfume bottles and shabby-chic lampshades. “This is one of my favorite places for finding unique, last-minute gifts,” Orosova says. To satisfy your craving for sweets, head to Tribeca Treats. Although the bakery might not have been mentioned on Sex and the City, “it has delicious homemade cupcakes that, at the least, rival its more famous competition.” Orosova recommends the cakes as fantastic one-of-a-kind gifts for any occasion, while The Reade Street Box and The Franklin Street Box—the store’s assortments of its popular handmade chocolates—make great birthday gifts. For flowers, as well as a broader range of artisanal goods, including seafood, meat, cheeses and coffee, All Good Things is a new addition to the neighborhood. This cozy spot, complete with exposed bricks on the wall, is also a great place to grab a sandwich on the go. In nearby Greenwich Village, The Market NYC is a trendy bazaar where vendors sell jewelry, hats, clothing and small decorations. Many merchants are local designers, which makes the market a “great place to find a unique souvenir from New York.”
