Stopping in to browse at Mieko Mintz is delightful. Here are one-of-a-kind, handmade clothing, scarves, hats (fantastic hats) and jewelry you will not find elsewhere. When I say hand made, I mean (most of) the cloth is hand made, hand woven, and/or hand dyed. The beads are not only hand strung but often hand made, combined with found objects--extra-ordinary. The knitting (and I'm a knitter) are original, exceptionally well-designed, and beautifully executed. When I wear something I have found at Mieko Mintz--a necklace, a ring, a scarf, a hat--I always receive a compliment - from someone with a good eye, another artisan, an artist, or a fellow knitter. Equally inviting are the quiet, intelligent and whimsical personalities of not only Mieko but also her staff. This store is a treasure.
