The Future Perfect: Williamsburg ShoppingPosted: July 14, 2009 | |
Finallyyyy had a shopping day in Williamsburg today (also stopped by on July 5th but was unsuccessful…I mean it WAS the day after July 4th…what do you expect??). Anyway, hit up a few stores that I mentioned in a previous post (see “New York Living”)…OAK, Fluke (which was CLOSED), Beacon’s Closet, etc etc etc…Also stopped by this art/furniture/jewelry store called The Future Perfect. My bffffff (hehe I’m such a girl) needed to pick up something for her mom. Thank goodness because I ended up LOVING the store. Price ranges for every budget and GREAT apartment finds. I found the cutest ring by AMT….it’s an acrylic “diamond ring.” I got it in RED…and it was only 10 bucks! Gotta love cheap diamonds.
Also, I am craving some toile in my life. My mom had a toile border in the bathroom of my childhood house…a couple months ago I googled “toile pillows” and found some amazing hand stitched pillows (a funky take on the classic print). It was love at first sight….WELLLLLL…upon arriving in The Future Perfect, I was happy to find the EXACT pillows gracefully placed on the signature quilted white couch in the middle of the store. Unfortunately, they sold for about $180 per pillow, eh..no thank you. They also had these really awesome needlepoint graffiti pillows..they looked like something your really urban, break-dancing g-maw stitched you for a gift…brilliant.
I will def need a few more Williamsburg shopping days…I need to make it back to Fluke while they are open! More to come!
