Editorial review from Citysearch 1/20/2013

I'm glad this shop is there - interesting selection - but its prices on cards are out of sight. Try $5-6 for a relatively average card (i.e., no pop-ups or audio). Fortunately, a card is a low ticket item. more

Alternative Hallmark store 12/23/2005

Actually this stationery and gift store is nothing like your Hallmark. It's a cool and funky gift shop that suits its Greenwich Village niche. And as the name of the store suggests, there are lots of interesting merchandise to browse in the store. Vintage collectibles, ornaments, stationery, one-of-a-kind greeting cards, etc. Great place to come to if you're looking for a unique gift idea. more

quirky 5/19/2002

There's definitely a vision to this store, which holds nicely designed thank-you notes and wrapping paper in addition to animal bone fossils and snazzy pocketknives. The service is sometimes a bit reserved or surly-seeming, oddly enough, but that just adds to the unusual texture. more
