I was visiting the Fabric Museum next door and saw the attractive window for this store. Its an interesting place- in back there are a series if photos of Philly and some large posters about INFILL projects, as well as nice clean restrooms. Up front is a great book and gift shop. And all free (unless you buy that neat stuff you are looking at.) Its very near the Reading Terminal.

Good albeit somewhat limited selection of new and cool items for giving. Wonderful set of items for kids of all decades. Best part is form meets function with many items.

There's an interesting and eclectic collection of toys and kitchen/home gadgets as well, and it's a great place to browse while waiting for one of the Center For Architecture's fabulous walking tours of the city, which include Furness's PA Academy of Fine Art, the Loews hotel (PSFS building), and Wanamakers, plus fascinating commentary and a much better understanding of the Gilded Age and modern city.

Several years ago this store had an extensive collection of books, many high quality and distinctive personal and household items, and a tasteful stock of greeting cards. It has shrunk to almost nothing in size, quality, and interest. Instead of a community asset, we have a tourist stop where conventioneers can pick up something to take home.

The layout of the store was appealing but the selection of merchandise was somwhat uninspired - Jonathan Adler tschokies, Lego architecture models, Phillies baseball Christmas tree ornaments - all pretty generic with a few gems scattered thoughout. The book selection was good however and the toy selection certainly had delights for young builders.

Jordan and Allison were so helpful! I was looking for a wedding gift for my best friend that is very design savvy. They helped me get a really colorful bowl set that stacks into itself. Was no cool I want one for my kitchen.
