Shop Girl: MUJI
If you are ever in the NY area you must make a spot at MUJI. This store is known for it’s no frills and extra’s philosophy and while that may sound boring to some it is the complete opposite.
I literally wanted one of everything in the shop. They do a great job of merchandising their wares and while everything is simple you know a lot of thought went into each design.
Of course I always want to share my favorite stores with you so I had to snap some pictures along the way.
The first thing that caught my eye was all of these containers. I seriously wanted one of everything. Why? I don’t really know, but I just figured I would have a million uses for them. Ah told ya I’m a marketer’s dream. :)
Always the interior decorator these acrylic boxes had me at hello. I can already picture them in my office holding supplies.
In my office I would also need notebooks and binders. Don’t you fret, because a couple of aisles over they have them in every size you can imagine.
They also had rows and rows of classic white dishes. I love white dishes. Since I tend to change my decor around quite a bit it’s nice to have timeless dishes that go with everything.
Look at their wall of cleaning supplies! Wow. Again totally want one of everything.
Now you are in NY so you know your going to want to pick up something to remember your trip. They have some of the chicest souvenirs I’ve ever seen.
My favorite had to be their city in a bag.
I don’t know why, but Jon loves picking up teeny toiletries for when we travel. I on the other hand love trying to jam all the full size stuff into my suitcase. That is until now when I spotted MUJI’s toiletries wall. AMAZING!
Lastly my favorite thing in the store had to be their towels. Yes they look like any ordinary towel, but then I read the little write up on them.
These towels are made with ribbing. Not only for the design of it, but so that you can reuse them. Let’s say you use it as your bath towel, but part of it starts getting a little worn. No problem. Simply cut down one of the ribbed lines and voila you now have a bath mat or a hand towel. In cutting down the ribs it will prevent any fraying so you can get as much use out of the towel as possible.
They also have clothing! But you know me I was mostly interested in their home decor items.
