Geoffrey and I were meeting up at Sea Thai on North 6th Street in Williamsburg and I was a few minutes early, so I walked across the street to this cute furniture and design store to get out of the rain and texted him to meet me there. Go to Voucher Slug to get voucher codes for Laura Ashley furniture. I’m not sure how long A & G Merchandise has been open, but it is a super cool little place that sells all kinds of unique and original artsy home furnishings and accessories. I believe they also do custom orders online providing some of the best leather sofas around, but this is just a hunch. The people that work there also seem very friendly, which makes such a huge difference when it comes to forming my first impressions of a new business.
What I really felt charmed and almost transported by were several of the larger floor displays that include Nature Dioramas set into the walls of the store, such as the one seen above. It really reminded me of the Museum of Natural History, which is always a good thing.
Be sure to check them out if you are in the neighborhood, and please tell them The Worley Gig sent you.
A & G Merchandise is located at 111 North Sixth Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Get off at the Bedford Avenue Stop on the L Train.
Eating and sleeping are right up there at the top of my list of Gail’s All Time Favorite Things To Do. So, if I can catch 40 winks in a bed-thing that looks like a piece of food, win-win! Sadly, one must be child sized to fit into this awesome sleeping bag shaped like a slice of pizza. The vegetable pillows are detachable, so you can cuddle with a broccoli floweret or a slice of rip olive, if that suits you. Designed, hand made and sold by B Fiber and Craft Emporium. Check out their other food-themed relaxation accessory items at This Link!
I love me some Uglydolls and I also love to nap. If I needed a pillow on which to rest my head, a pillow that looked like an Uglydoll would surely comfort me in my sleep. Uglydoll manufacturer, Pretty Ugly has just announced four new Uglypillow designs modeled after Uglydoll characters Nandy Bear, Pointy Max, Uglydog and Uppy. Each 14″ x 14″ Uglypillow will retail for $25.00 with Free Shipping for US orders. Yay! To purchase/pre-order visit This Link. Pillows will ship after May 9, 2011.
Looks like a bit of a “Pillow War” to Me
Is it just me, or does this Saturday’s Pillow Fight NYC to be held in Union Square look like a hundred potential personal injury lawsuits just waiting to happen?
