The space: Impressively large yet warm and charming. Gallery-quality art on the walls, wearable art on the racks.
The goods: Statement jewelry from around the globe ($20-$1,000) plus clothing from hard-to-find Indian designers mixed with better-known lines such as Ports 1961 and Norma Kamali ($35-$3,000).
Go if: You dig anthropology but are looking for something a little less twee than Anthropologie.
See at: 303 Bowery, b/t Houston & 1st Sts. (646-705-0050).
The space: The designer’s first. White-washed brick, black metal racks, and a few peacock feather installations by Carol Bove.
The goods: Giberson’s own sparse-chic separates. We like an oversize V-neck white dress ($435), moon-print sleeveless tee ($165), and black leather vest ($1,065). Jewelry by Jonathan Berger and Ninh Wysocan and a few artsy books round out the selection.
Go if: You own a loft in Tribeca and never wear a bra.
See at: 97 Crosby St., at Prince St., ste. 1 (212-226-1932).
Overbey & Dunn
The space: Tom Dunn and Molly Kavanagh’s jewel box-size West Village home store gets a complete makeover every month or so. It feels like a gracefully aged French apartment au moment.
The goods: An antique marble-top bar ($1,400), brass elephant bookends ($175), china for six ($450), and decanter set ($135) will all go away when Scott Sanders installs beach cottage chic on May 26.
Go if: You are (or aspire to be) one of those people who never throws clothes on the floor and levitates when happy.
See at: 19 Christopher St., b/t Greenwich Ave. & Waverly Pl. (212-242-3004).
The space: The jeweler jumps from L.A. to NYC and lands in well-appointed Brooklyn digs that let the wares do the talking.
The goods: Carved agate geode rings for under $100 and boulder-size pendants dipped in gold — just like her heart: Ettinger is giving 10 percent of sales to One by One, a women’s design collective in Peru.
Go if: You like things on the rocks — salt or no salt.
See at: 214 Hicks St., b/t Remsen & Montague Sts., Brooklyn Heights (718-875-3272).
Goodwill Greenwich Village Boutique
The space: Pack it up; pack it in. When it comes to charity resell, quantity and overflowing racks trump trendy minimalism.
The goods: We’ve long understood the correlation between an area’s uppity reputation and the selection at the local Goodwill. Following that logic, expect to find some treasures.
Go if: You’ve got shallow pockets and deep compassion.
See at: 44 W. 8th St., b/t Sixth Ave. & MacDougal St. (212-477-7024).
