Extraordinary is filled to its very high ceiling with a funky mix of international finds, like lacquered trays handcrafted in Vietnam, ceramic vases thrown in Thailand, and tableware designed in Japan. Enormous platters, often designed and commissioned by the owner while on buying trips around the world, are inlaid with intricate bamboo, leaf, or even eggshell designs. The unique goods are fun enough to serve as housewarming presents, but shimmering mother-of-pearl serving bowls or Italian glass jewelry boxes are glamorous enough for a classy wedding gift, as well. Even if you're just looking to treat yourself to something small, there's plenty of bizarre, charming knick-knacks, from key chains (sterling-silver cowboy boots) to bottle openers (sprouting from a lobster claw) to candy dishes (a life-size, bronzed flip-flop).
