MUJI and CB2 open in SoHO, NYC
The MUJI store opened on Friday, and there were lines outside the store to get into the store, and lines in the store to purchase. There were lots of containers and little knick-knacks, office supplies, furniture and clothes. A lot of the stuff is over my price point. I almost bought this whiteboard, until I found that it cost $40. What I find handy is the plastic case for business cards. I would skip the line, and just go to the MoMA store a block and a half away.
As for the CB2 store, they sell contemporary furniture and house ware for slightly less than parent company Crate and Barrel.
Just in time for the holidays...
