This pretty Pink Bottle of Kikoman brand Hello Kitty Soy Sauce was spotted on the shelf in Pearl River Mart, located on Broadway and Walker Street in Chinatown, NYC!
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.
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 set, slippers, brocade satin purses and novelty tote bags, trinkets, cosmetics and of course incense and tiny statuary.
This photo was taken from an upstairs loft, looking from the back of the store toward the front, and will give you an idea of the layout.
It is so exciting and comforting to have Pearl River back in business. Welcome Back!
Pearl River Mart is Located at 395 Broadway, Two Blocks Below Canal Street in Tribeca/Chinatown, NYC.
I found this amazing lamp on the second floor of Pear River Mart, on Broadway near Grand Street in downtown Manhattan. The price tag says $299.50, but it has 50% off sticker on it, so this is some kind of incredible bargain, if you ask me. If this seems like something you might want to own, I suggest you bring a friend with you, to help carry it to the street, because it probably weighs a few pounds.
Bargain Hunter’s Paradise
This past weekend, Geoffrey (aka Other G or “OG”) and I went downtown to Pearl River Mart to shop like maniacs. OG has been listening to me rave about Pearl River Mart for over a year and this was his first visit to the wonderful Palace of Asian Delights where I would shop every day if I could. Of course, he fell head-over-heels in love with place right then and there. Because, let’s face it, Pearl River Market is the shit.
We had so much fun I was inspired to create a Top Ten list in tribute to PRM’s greatness. Therefore, I bring you:
Top Ten Things I Love About Shopping at Pearl River Market:
1. PRM is the only place where I will buy incense, because theirs is the best, and it makes the Chickpad smell amazing.
2. For Christmas Tracy bought me a dish towel holder from Pearl River that is shaped like a little kimono. I use it all the time.
