So well-curated, so much fun! I love stopping into Poketo to check out their wares—I always see something that inspires me, whether it's a new idea for my kitchen or an amazing pair of socks (I could really step up my sock game, apparently). The people-watching is also great here—everyone is stylish and happy and seems as if their biggest problem of the day is choosing between planters in two slightly different shades of pink. Poketo also hosts lots of talks and pop-ups, which means even better people-watching, and also free snacks and booze. Which facilitates the fancy sock-buying.
