It's no surprise that Alisa Grifo, owner of the super-cool SoHo shop Kiosk has great taste. In this week's Shopping With... feature from The New York Times, Alisa shares her ideas for a range of unique urban necessities in a wide range of price points...
Our personal favorite of the bunch (and probably the least useful item) is this model kit for a loft building from Red Caboose for $20.
This ceramic casserole dish is only $3.80 from New Kam Man.
On the high end is BDDW's ladder chair. $1600 from BDDW.
