Finally, there’s bright spot on this dismal end of year season. Pearl River Mart, everyone’s favorite Asian Imports Store, has reopened as a Pop-Up at 395 Broadway. Oh, Happy Day. This space will become the store’s permanent location after a brief shuttering in February 2017 to allow for further construction on the interior.

Store Interior Far Right

I made an excited initial visit to the new store and can report that, while it is now much smaller than its previous 30,000 SF, multi-level home, this new space has many of the items you love to peruse, shop for, and give as gifts including ceramics and tableware, tea sets, slippers, brocade satin purses and novelty tote bags, trinkets, cosmetics and of course incense and tiny statuary.

You should stash your drugs in this.

Here we have a ceramic storage case shaped like a human head and adorned with markings that harken back to the long abandoned “science” of phrenology, which you can read about here. Because, why not? Then you can buy this rad Phrenology Head Hinged Case (measures 4″ x 6-1/2″ x 3-1/2″), which you can open and put stuff in. It would make a great House Warming Gift!
