I love stuff. I am probably going to be one of those old ladies that is found forgotten at age 102, in her ramshackle flat, buried under piles of old magazines, typewriters, porcelain cat figureines, dried out textas, snow globes, an impressive eraser collection, dusty toffee apples, an Iced Vovo, and the odd rogue sequin. I am going to New York in June where I intend to procure a whole lot of new stuff to add to my stuff collection. I often collect things just because they have amazing packaging, colour schemes, or shapes, regardless of whether they are actually useful to me or not. So when I came across this amazing concept store in New York I knew it would be a MUST to visit.
Kiosk is a shop in SoHo that sells trinkets and treasures from around the globe. The shop celebrates amazing design found in everyday objects and their packaging. Alisa Grifo travels to different locales collecting an assortment of ephemera which she then brings back to sell in curated, country-themed displays. I think I'm going to need a bigger suitcase..
