Tom Diller’s eclectic shop is a neighborhood institution—if only because he made it one. The storekeeper strikes up a conversation with everybody who walks through the door, and is eager to share the stories behind his artisan stock: record bowls, hand-stitched Indian quilts, unisex pajamas printed with Hong Kong personal ads, handwoven Oaxacan laundry baskets, even wallets fashioned from The New York Times Arts section.
