#LocalGuide: Best Things To Buy From NYC

local guide nyc

After last week’s local shopping guide for the Anglophile, we’re crossing the globe to cover our favourite concrete jungle: New York City. Known for its subway system, the hustle and bustle of Times Square and its impressive city landmarks, NYC is more than meets the eye. If you are not planning to swing by the Big Apple, ShopandBox our top things from NYC now, with the help of our Boxers:

Fishs Eddy Artist Palette Coaster

local guide nyc local guide nyc

Artist Palette Coasters, Fishs Eddy, USD9.95, + Add To Wishlist: Ask any Big Apple local and where you can find quirky home and kitchen essentials and they will likely point you towards Fishs Eddy. Contrary to its name, the store wasn’t founded (nor inspired) by a fish market. Its name was inspired by a small hamlet located in the Catskill Mountains upstate, and if you’re into creatively-designed tableware, check out its astounding range online. Fishs Eddy has previously collaborated with major brands too including Pantone and Cynthia Rowley for limited edition ranges. Our pick this week is this Artist Palette Coaster that would make the prettiest additions to your table when you’re hosting a meal.

Andy Warhol Soup Cans Salt & Pepper Shakers, MoMA Design Store, USD125, + Add To Wishlist: Scoring something from the MoMA Design Store is a must-do if you’re visiting NYC. Or, if you’re not, shop from its online store easily. What makes MoMA’s Design Store stand out from the rest is its well curated assortment of products. There are eight criteria that each item needs to pass to be a “good fit” with the store’s vision. In a nutshell, whatever you’re getting from here is a work of art and well-made/designed in every way. Case in point, these salt and pepper shakers are referenced from Andy Warhol’s iconic artwork, the Campbell’s Soup Cans.


Kith Great Jones Williams Hoodie

Whilst it offers other brands (apparel and footwear included), Kith also has its own in-house label clothing, including athleisure-inspired hoodies and sweatshirts that tailor to the urban, hip crowd.

Bespoke Custom Blend, Brooklyn Roasting, USD15, + Add To Wishlist: You can’t say you’ve gone to Brooklyn without trying Brooklyn Roasting Company’s coffee. Known for its well-sourced and sustainable coffees from across the world, the roastery also sells coffee (either coarsely ground or in whole beans) if you’re interested in brewing your own cup from the comfort of your home. We suggest the Bespoke Custom Blend, a medium-roast blend from Colombia and Guatemala.


NY Transit Museum Store 2nd Avenue Tote Bag

2nd Avenue Tote Bag, NY Transit Museum Store, USD17.5, + Add To Wishlist: NYC is likely the only place that you can find knick-knacks solely dedicated to its transportation system. Shop from NY Transit Museum Store and you’d know what we mean. Founded to support the New York Transit Museum’s exhibition, the stores actually generate about 20% of the museum’s operating revenue. Find items that feature historic iconography of New York’s subways, busses, tunnels and more in the form of bags, apparel and collectibles.


Nunu Chocolate Covered Salt Caramels

Chocolate Covered Salt Caramels, Nunu, USD8, + Add To Wishlist: Nunu is one of NYC’s more popular chocolate shops, and is recognised for its decadent hot chocolate — what we couldn’t give to have a cup! But if you aren’t making a trip to the Big Apple anytime soon, try its bestseller, the chocolate covered salt caramels to satisfy your cravings. These caramels are sprinkled with Fleur de Sel for a salty nuance.


Tiffany & Co. Bone China Paper Cup
