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

New York native Nina Allen opened this home-decor and gift boutique to showcase international finds from Sweet Bella, a wholesale company she started seven years ago that sells a mix of goods like stationery, birdcalls and bags. The minimalist shop specializes in oddities from small companies and family businesses, whose craftsmanship techniques, such as ceramics and leather working, have been passed down for generations. Allen travels the globe, handpicking eclectic items such as Atelier NL by Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum clay dishes from Holland ($30–$130), Valenki wool boots from Russia ($130), Kyouei Design balloon lamps from Japan ($35), gorgeous Sweet Bella signature hand-painted Venetian leather pouches ($56–$90) and Patrick Fray Industrial Design cloth unraveling calendars ($90), which have strings you can pull away until you reach the end of the year. Bonus: During the winter months, patrons can rent handmade wooden toboggans and sleds ($15–$20 per hour) or purchase them ($140–$350) and get them custom engraved for $18.
