NY NOW Retail Store Visit Highlight from @amy.atnynow featuring @magpienewyork Be sure to check out their IG accounts.

Today I picked up some wishes and a tiny heart (I collect them) at @magpienewyork Magpie is an eclectic, ecofriendly boutique JEM💎on Manhattans UWS specializing in recycled, repurposed, organic, locally made and fair trade cooperatives from around the world. Founder / Owner Sylvia Parker thoughtfully selects gifts including home décor, jewelry, accessories, stationery, and toys. In real life Magpies collect shiny objects for the nest; and so does Sylvia, the things she loves for her customers she loves too!

Magpie opened in 2012, closed its doors in March but has recently reopened for business. Sylvia is a long term #NYNOW buyer and knows our market very well. She definitely is one who needs to see, touch and feel the cherished items she brings into her store. We talked about tradeshows and buying of the future… both agreeing that retail is moving ahead into something new and so do we. Through challenge is growth, it may be really freaking hard but something new evolves and it can be great. Make it a point to stop in, look around and say hi if you are in the area and check out her website at
