Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Chinese Lanterns Store Display

It is no secret that shopping at Pearl River Mart is my jam, because that store has everything. Earlier this year, Pearl River opened a new location in the Chelsea Market, and that is where I discovered this breathtaking decorative display of Pink Chinese Paper Lanterns and colorful paper parasols, which inspired today’s ‘pink thing’ post. These lanterns can be used (and re-used) in place of balloons as festive party décor, don’t you think? They are so lovely.

Chinese Paper Lanterns in a variety of colors and sizes are available for super cheap at both Pearl River locations (Chinatown and Chelsea) and they can also be purchased online at This Link!

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 sets, slippers, brocade satin purses and novelty tote bags, trinkets, cosmetics and of course incense and tiny statuary.

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.

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 since he was an egg, 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 Mart 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.

Kimono Top

2. For Christmas, a friend bought me a dish towel holder from Pearl River Mart that is shaped like a little kimono. I use it all the time.

Waterfall

3. On the way downstairs they have a waterfall. I wish this waterfall was in my house.

4. PRM provides one-stop shopping for all your Asian figurine needs.

5. Exotic scented votive candles that smell like rain and weird fruits.

6. It’s a great place to find cheap kitchen gadgets. I got my spring-loaded, fried food tongs there.


An Alternative to Greasy Sunblock

7. These Parasols keep the sun off me so I don’t fry.

Chinese Dragon Head

8. Papier Mache Dragon Heads were a fun addition to the wedding reception of my friends Anina and Mark.

9. Walking practically all the way to Chinatown from 14th Street is a good excuse to stop at Gonzales y Gonzales for a margarita on the way back home from shopping at PRM.

10. Seriously, I do 90% of my gift shopping there and people just go insane over all the cool stuff they get from me. Thank You, Pearl River Mart for making me seem so much cooler than I am.
