The little things.
While the whole experience was well worth the trip, I'm going to break down a few specifics. Things that really caught my eye.
Wood spinning tops! I spied them is a great shop called The Future Perfect in the SoHo area (click this link to go to the top's page on The Future Perfect website). These beautiful little guys are around and 1.5" to 2" tall, so they are small and could easily have been missed. Thankfully I didn't walk passed them. Displayed in a small dish in four different types of wood, hand turned in Japan, and in various shapes, they make lovely little kinetic sculptures.

To quote Charles Eames “Toys are not really as innocent as they look. Toys and games are preludes to serious ideas.” The Herman Miller Pop-Up Shop also had a book of quotes from Mr. Eames that would be a great addition to my library!
