Handcrafted porcelain and ceramic bowls or weighty glass cups painted like impressionist works can sound a bit like a chintzy version of treasure from the bottom of the sea. Hey, don’t let the folksy music, the stainless-steel wind chime, or the New Age vibe mislead you. On closer inspection, you’ll notice some glass domes hold carved insects, and spiders sparkle amid the miniature curios. This shop is actually more a collector’s cove than a precious tchotchkes trap. If you’re not in the market to invest in glass goods, browse the jewelry; co-owner Ria Charisse’s pendant necklaces are beaded with cruelty-free gems like labradorite and moonstone.
