2010 Shop-Local Gift Guide: Duane

ANTIQUERIA TRIBECA
• Antiqueria mostly sells antiques, as its name would lead one to believe, but it also has these sexy lacquered boxes. They come in a few other colors and sizes, including one designed for CDs. The small one below is $66.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

ELAN FLOWERS
• Miniature succulents start at $20, topiaries at $35.
• Or splurge on this somewhat Christmas-y succulent in a handmade glass bowl ($90).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

NEW YORK NAUTICAL
• This propeller candle holder might be the cheapest piece of home decor in all of Tribeca ($12).
• The canvas tote has “port” on one side and “starboard” on the other ($40).
• Stocking stuffer for the PADI-certified: a diving bell key ring ($4.50).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

WORKING CLASS EMPORIUM
• Umbrellas with confused-looking cats and dogs on them ($35).
• Paul Smith cuff links in various flavors ($105–$195).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

MONDO CANE
• Yellow ceramic clock attributed to Raymor, Italy, 1960s ($1,200). In a pinch you can always bang it over the head of an intruder.
• Oil painting by Robert Loughlin, 2005 ($2,400).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DUANE ANTIQUES
• Another antique-store anomaly: an exclusive iPhone or iPod synching/charging pad; the device rests in the palm (silver $250, white $180).
• Faux Bois Pottery by Meme Kennedy. Price upon request.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

TRIBECA CITIZEN T-SHIRTS
• So what if they’re not actually sold on Duane (yet)? There are two styles—including ones that say “Jay-Z is my neighbor”—starting at $25, or $15 for kids’ shirts.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

JONATHAN BURDEN
• Best mirror ever: In the manner of Serge Roche, it’s evidently a keyhole shape, but I see a pawn or a rook. I suppose there are other interpretations. ($7,500).
• Exquisite Indian boxes (from $3,000).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

GROWN & SEWN / SKOT FOREMAN FINE ART
• Sheets of old Wacky Packages stickers ($100). If you’re a man over 40, you recognize these—actually, I just looked them up online and Topps is currently making them, so kids may recognize them, too (if not all the brands).
• Grown & Sewn leather belt; also in black ($95).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

PROJECT NO. 8
• Keep your kids in order with this Natalia Brilli leather whistle ($179).
• Various Projects’ stuffed alpaca pigeon ($60). Don’t let it drive the bus!
• Sippers-as-dry-mops, by Tom Scott ($250).

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

NILI LOTAN
• A classic collarless striped tunic ($265).
• Vintage boot charms add a little shitkickin’ to any outfit ($89–$99).
