Don’t let the fluorescent lighting and cracked linoleum floor deter you: What this 18-year-old home and garden shop lacks in charm, it makes up for in sweet deals on imported items, like colorful Chinese ceramic vases ($3–$95), porcelain bowls painted with traditional patterns ($9) and clay teapots ($15–$300). While you can find similar items at high-end boutiques in other parts of the city, this store boasts the real deal at absurdly low prices, and its remote location ensures you’ll have your pick of the regularly replenished merchandise, which also includes Chinese painting brushes ($1–$10) and watercolor paintings ($49–$100).
