After starting her lifestyle, culture and fashion blog, How to Change a Flat (howtochangeaflat.com), in March 2009, Angela Silva became passionate about making new discoveries and cataloging her unique ideas and interests. With encouragement from her boyfriend, Emil Corsilo, who owns men’s store Hickoree’s Hard Goods, Silva decided to open a shop to house all of her favorite objects. A brass chandelier hangs from the torched-pine ceiling and matches the brass-and-black-piped garment racks throughout the space. The stock is an eclectic mix of home goods, women’s clothing and accessories from both international labels and New York designers such as the Hillside, Erin Considine and Obbi Good Label. Deck out your pad with global gear such as Minas Gerais handwoven blankets ($18), Austrian brand Riess Kelomat enamelware ($30–$78) and Redecker wooden brushes ($18–$200) from Denmark. For garb that’s sure to garner compliments, pick up Fernanda Yamamoto woven cotton blouses ($290) and Warmi bird sweaters ($260).
