And while you are up there MIXED BAG MAG recommends checking out great stores like Mjölk for the most yummiest collection of exquisitely design objects from spinning tops to tools as well as furniture and photography; longing for Toronto designer Hoi Bo’s toiletry cases and The Hunting Chair by Danish designer Borge Mogensen.

Wander in to ARTicluations to see their current exhibit of Brothers Dressler designs and Smash for a nostalgic and well curated assortment of large and small odds and ends.
