Talking Shop Talk

Thanks to our incredibly generous and supportive readers, our campaign for Shop Talk: New York's 100 Most Interesting Stores has reached 85% of its goal. There are just 10 days left to put us over the top and we'd love to have you join the project.

Shop Talk will be published this fall, a celebration of the city's interesting, cool, useful, unexpected, witty, or beautiful merchandise, but also the people behind the store, who guide its character and add to the city's character, too. [Perfect example of the beautiful and the unexpected: the 20,000 artists' books at Printed Matter]

Whether you're a casual shopper or a black-belt buyer, we guarantee you'll find new places to spruce up your apartment, your wardrobe, or give the best gifts ever! [The kind you'll find at Red Hook's Metal and Thread]

There are great perks for contributors. [Sadly, the VBH bag at left isn't one of them.] And if you can't contribute but want to support the project, you can help spread the word to your friends and through social media. We'd also love to have you suggest a favorite store!
