Farther east at Pottery Barn, a clever saleswoman tipped me off to the kids' department where I found sea-creature-inspired towels—which were less expensive than adult ones. I loved the crab style, which featured cute red crawlers in different sizes on a plain white background. The super-supple terry cloth felt great on my face, and the playful pattern reminded me of the beach. 127 E. 59th St., nr. Lexington Ave.; 917-396-0050.
