A modern day general store is the description of Art Effect on their site. It really is a very apt description. If we need a gift, we can ALWAYS find something here.
The products in the store range from clothing, shoes and jewelery to toys (and cds, books, bags and makeup) to what we are really interested in here at AT - home goods. Over the years the percentage of housewares Art Effect carries has seemed to increase, but it can vary by season.
Great selections: candles, servers and bowls, fancy soap, cute aprons, unusual mezuzot and hamsot. Prices cover the spectrum - its possible to spend under $10 or well into the hundreds, but the scope is as wide as the selection of goods. The diversity of objects continues with its sourcing. There are mass-produced items, crafty small-production items and vintage one-of-a-kinds. We've been tempted by all sorts of things on our visits: knitting baskets, glassware, trays, cookbooks... What will you find?
