You MUST go to the Ted Muehling store in SoHo, just above Canal St.

He's a brilliant, brilliant jeweler/designer who's known for extremely elegant, very simple pieces abstracted from nature - shells, feathers, seeds, pods. His sense of materials, form and proportion is absolutely incredible.

More recently, he's been designing ceramics for Nymphenberg in Germany, and glass pieces for Steuben. My favourite remains his jewelry and candle holders, though.

Don't be put off by the web site - he's almost anti-technology, to the extent that he refuses to do online merchandising because he doesn't want to have to increase his production.

They keep gallery hours - noon to 6PM, Tuesday through Saturday.

This New York resident suggests Housing Works: thrift stores have lovely window displays. Addresses to their seven shops are on the Web site.

You have such superb taste that I am wary of suggesting much else, but I'll think about it.

Try to hit up areas around the Lower East Side...Stanton, Rivington, ludlow st...these have some fantastic new boutiques.

Have a wonderful time!!
