I Spy: Shopsin's General Store

I was looking for a new place to eat at the other day and landed on this article about Shopsin's General Store - alright I confess, it was the photo of the sliders that got me. The Essex Market was actually a stone's throw away from our old apartment, so I'm really surprised we missed this one. I was browsing around the site (impressive menu btw) and clicked on "novelties"...



ok... a) one of the best designs I've seen for a shop. It can't get any easier than this! It's a perfect online interpretation of a fuss-free general store. b) doh! Tamara Shopsin of course! Ohhh so her family is responsible for the yummy sliders?!? Well, I've had my eye on the 5 Year Diary for ages now.

My new favorites? I think these cards are hilarious... The Pining Porcupine: "I wish I didn't LOVE balloons so much" & The Bawling Strawberry: "GOSH! I'm in a Jam"

I just watched the documentary "I Like Killing Flies" two nights ago, which is about the move of Shopsins the eatery in Greenwich Village. Is this the same Shopsins? I looked at there website, and it looks like it is! How timely for me to see this post! Very cool!!

Oh fun - great find! Digging the door stop and the tongue depressors - not quite sure what I would do with those though...

oh I'm gonna have to add that movie to my list. Thanks!

hi Melis & Julie!

tongue depressors are def cool! I guess single folks could sharpie their phone # in the back of them and use them as calling cards ;)
