Pearl River Mart, situated on the cusp of SoHo and Chinatown, embraces the best of those two worlds. It has all the trendy, fun goods you would expect to find in a SoHo store, but most are of the affordable and asian-inspired variety typically found in Chinatown.
Pearl River Mart has a penchant for offering things you likely haven’t seen elsewhere, but they don’t charge you that “unique finds” fee that so many boutique stores tend to add on. If you don’t think you are into Asian-inspired goods, a trip here might change your mind. So much so that you’ll wonder if you should throw a Chinese New Year’s Party this year, just for an excuse to hang this cool dragon in your house.
I love that it is hard to nail down this store. Is it a clothing store? A home design store? A place to find a some cute decorations for a party or housewarming gift?
It ends up being a really fun place to shop. Even if you don’t have a reason to step inside, you’ll soon find one.
