Shopping West Village

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

With three locations in and around Seattle, Glassybaby opens its first East Coast store in the West Village, selling owner and founder Lee Rhodes’s brightly colored handmade glass votives. A team of 30 people in Seattle handblow small votives ($42) and slightly wider glasses ($55)—in more than 70 basic colors (though each is one of a kind)—and these are arranged in rainbow-color order at the store. “I think the Glassybaby is the perfect New York item,” Rhodes says. “Just lighting a candle at the end of a long day can be magical.” At the boutique, you can watch a video of the glassblowing process on a flat-screen TV or use the light boxes (which simulate darkness so you can see how Rhodes’s lit candle would look at night). What’s more, 10% of the annual profits will go to the Police Athletic League NYC, a nonprofit that offers afterschool care for city kids. Now that’s magical.
