We already feel stuffed.
Limited-Edition Deyrolle Scarves
What: Opening Ceremony teamed with Parisian taxidermy boutique Deyrolle to create a silk scarf printed with a menagerie of exotic animals and insects.
Why: You’ve got no room for a stuffed tiger, but this $95 accessory easily fits into a drawer or, better yet, around your neck.
When: Available Sept. 10.
Where: 35 Howard St., b/t Crosby St. & Broadway (212-219-2688).
Modern Anthology Opens
What: Don’t let the framed nudes or piles of cattle bones intimidate you; there’s plenty of vintage and home goods for ladies in this new Dumbo boutique.
Why: If the reissued Stanley thermoses, classic barware, and retro French anatomy posters don’t thrill, hire owners/interior designers John Marsala and Becka Citron to source something that does.
When: Mon., by appt.; Tues.-Sat., 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., noon-6 p.m.
Where: 68 Jay St., b/t Front & Water Sts. (718-522-3020).
The James New York

Why: The enclosed glass rooftop deck and bar (and pool for warmer months) opens Oct. 1.
When: You need a staycation or you’ve got guests in town.
Where: 27 Grand St., at Thompson St. (888-526-3778).
