I just had the great pleasure of stopping in Magpie this afternoon! What an incredible addition to the UWS! We have been waiting for an artistic, elegant, fun, eco-friendly and terribly stylish boutique! I want everything. The greeting card selection is perfection. All of the items are so unique while retaining an amazing sense of playfulness about them. Every item feels like was chosen and crafted with love and intent. I am so excited to return!
I have followed owner Sylvia throughout shops where her aesthetic was instantly recognizable and on view.. Now it looks as though her shop allows her splendid taste to shine on her own canvas. At her Magpie boutique, I bought a slender, uniquely shaped Vietnamese vase for a friend to which he bellowed, "wait till the poker guys see this in my apartment!" He was happy - and it was affordable. Sylvia selected the perfect Peekeetoo birthday card to accompany a (now vintage-sounding) calling card case for a another friend in need of more "green" networking. I am staying tuned to Magpie.
