Before you head over to Circolo on Bond Street, make sure you stop into Paula Rubenstein's new venue. You may remember her old legendary shop on Prince Street. It was so jammed packed with treasures that I thought I was going to break something every time I entered. When the landlord tripled her rent, she quietly disappeared last year but turned up on my favorite street not long after which could not have made me happier. Now there is more for all her antiques and to stand back to see everything. Her fabric fanatics will rejoice at the new organized shelves and you should run, not walk, to check out the bookshelves. As I told her, everything happens for a reason, and in this case, for once a rent hike turned out to be a good thing.

If you look closely, she has a copy of Grace Coddington's highly collectible and hard to find first book for sale. It's $1200 if you are interested.
I LOVE the paint drips on the sides of this table that I was told might have been used to print wallpaper.
