This exotic shop offers globally sourced jewelry, housewares, and décor from East Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Owner Marcelo Duek—also the proprietor of Boca Grande Furnishings on Greene Street—opened Arts & Crafts in 1987, painting the walls vibrant shades of green and orange and filling the space with handmade finds from India, Brazil, Argentina, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Overhead wooden shelves are filled with Viva Zapata bags, patched together from the same glossy, colorful vinyl that covers bus seats in Buenos Aires. Buddha statues made of colored resin, plated gold, or cast iron sprawl across bookshelves alongside carved rosewood candle holders, artistic jewelry boxes, woolly throw pillows, and hand-painted decorative birds. Elaborate mirrors with carved wooden frames deck the walls, reflecting light off glittery bangles and statuettes. A store-spanning glass case holds the collection of sterling silver, 18-karat, and 22-karat gold jewelry, with most items hailing from Brazil and India. Coral trinkets and dainty elephant charms dangle from earrings on golden chains, necklaces combine twisting coils of silver and gold, and rings are studded with emeralds, sapphires, diamonds, and onyx.
