World traveler Nina Allen’s collection of whimsical trinkets, originally only available through her wholesale company, can now be obtained at her cozy Lower East Side store. Between poplar wood walls and glass cases, Allen displays discoveries from Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, Korea, Morocco, and India. The quirky finds make the store a homey rendition of a Japanese department store, with well-designed toys for kids and adults alike. Wooden tables of stylish Moleskin notebook-alternatives and shelves of small handmade devices for making uncannily accurate bird calls stand next to large French pillows, realistic porcelain fruit, and German pens. Allen curates her eclectic collection with history in mind—most of the manufacturers she uses have been around for more than 100 years, some up to 200 years.
