The Kiosk: Things from Places (Soho, NYC)

IMG_7901

Located at the heart of Soho, the Kiosk store goes against the commercially branded luxury loot it's surrounded with.

A mixture of quirky and educational, Kiosk prides itself in its collection of random things from all over the world. From swedish candy wrappers, to mexican chicken suits and cute japanese post cards.

It's curator, Alisa Grifo switches up her display from country to country every 4 - 5 months. Her collections include things from Japan, Sweden, Mexico, Germany, Finland, Hongkong, Provence, Portugal, Iceland and India.

Being inside actually feels more like you're in a museum than a store. :) It's cute, quirky and different. Perfect for searching souls and scavengers at heart.

A little preview: (a video made by my friend Alec during our Kiosk excursion)

The store seems a little shady at first, to be honest. It's entrance looked more like a bar or a really shady punk's not dead store.

But after you climb some sketchy flight of stairs you'll discover something brilliant

One thing I regret: not buying something. After a while I forgot it was a store. =))
