KIOSK in Soho proves good things come in small packages. tucked away on bustling Spring Street in Soho, it’s easy to miss. Discovering this store is an adventure, just look for the geometric neon sign peeking out from a dark hallway…

KIOSK Soho

…walk up a graffiti filled staircase and enter through a heavy unmarked door.

 

KIOSK is a secret museum full of tiny treasures from around the world.

 

Every household item is handpicked and displayed in a store that feels more like your jet-setting friend’s apartment. Each piece is accompanied by a typed note, sometimes whimsical, sometimes profound, describing its origin.

 

It’s also a great place to get a gift for the person who has everything. Some of our favorites…

These red lamps can be found all over Hong Kong’s food markets. We like them because they’re cool, cheap and easy to hang.
