When I lived in the East Village, this
was the ONLY place to purchase quality gifts. They have an assortment of items ranging from pricey to cheap-y. I, myself like to buy my loved ones things that smell nice... like candles.
Hip home decor and eccentric gift items for urban 20- and 30-somethings in a funky East Village boutique..
If French Country or Colonial isn't your style, head to Exit 9 to decorate your apartment. Perusing through the store is like a trip to an upscale flea market, with finds including modern picture frames, funky flatware and offbeat coffee table books. It's also a great place for off-the-wall greeting cards, knickknacks, quirky gifts and novelty items, such as Ugly Dolls and Tim Burton-designed figurines.
