First Look: The Man-Bag and the Dollhouse

Scissor (80 Varick St., nr. Canal St.; 347-662-3600) opened in Tribeca about two weeks before Sandy hit. Located just steps from what became a hurricane evacuation zone, the tiny 190-square-foot store was luckily left unscathed. Scissor’s owner, freelance creative director Eric Zim, has decked the space with what he calls “special things geared for fathers and sons.” But that’s not to say that mothers and daughters, friends and lovers, won’t want to shop here too. The store’s window currently boasts a Tomos moped customized by Brooklyn’s Second Stroke. The boxes stacked underneath the table are dollhouses for boys, designed by Paris Renfroe.
