Proprietor Karl Sorensen travels to Europe and South America three times a year to bring back rare finds for his home and tableware shop. Whether it’s a vintage belt from the Italian army or a Victorian-era teapot, Sorenson has a flair for unearthing items that aren’t mass-produced. Don’t be afraid to shop impulsively; most likely whatever it is won’t be there next time.

Tip: Sorensen also sells his wares through his Web site.

Tip: Don’t overlook the little baskets throughout the store; they often contain some of the coolest objects.
