Sharing Is Caring: The City’s Best Cooperatively Run Boutiques and Design Stores

We the People.

This week's issue of New York Magazine tackled the idea of "The New Collectivism," and how the city is basically becoming one giant commune. You can share cabs, bikes, babysitters, speedboats, ice cream, pork chops, sushi chefs, and pretty much anything else your little heart desires. To wit, writer Rachel Wolff compiled a list of the city's ten best cooperatively run, tastefully curated galleries, boutiques, and design stores — and what to buy at each. Among the winners: We the People, Trunk, Love Brigade + Friends, International Playground, and OHWOW. [NYM]
