I realize I have posted about this little New York-based store before, but you’ll thank me for reminding you about it! Go to Kiosk‘s site this weekend and shop dozens of creative, odd, simple, quirkly, original, useful, friendly, inexpensive gifts for nearly everyone on your list. Okay, maybe everyone.

The store’s concept is best described on their blog:

Kiosk offers a curated range of prod­ucts from all over the world in an exhi­bi­tion for­mat. Every­thing is sourced dur­ing our trav­els; we build the col­lec­tion while away and then fea­ture what we found at KIOSK for 4 — 6 months. Our cur­rent show is AMERICAN INSTALLMENT #2, in addi­tion we also have an “Ongo­ing” col­lec­tion of objects from pre­vi­ous exhibitions.

We opened the store to offer an alter­na­tive to over-design. We con­sider the objects we stock to be hum­ble, straight­for­ward and beau­ti­ful for their sim­plic­ity and direct­ness. Often they are tra­di­tional goods that have devel­oped over gen­er­a­tions or anony­mous design found in gen­eral stores, DIYs and kiosks. Prod­ucts cre­ated by not one per­son­al­ity but things that are the result of local aes­thet­ics and needs. Their beauty is some­times hard to see in today’s mar­ket; our moti­va­tion to start Kiosk was to shed some light on these anony­mous objects and sup­port inde­pen­dent producers.
