The next time you're in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, make it a priority to trek over to Obscure Object (646.251.3862, 20 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211). I happened upon the store recently and could've spent a few hours looking through all the unique treasures, ranging from rare magazines and books to china and wood furniture. It just opened in April and the owner, Jess, frequents estate sales in Vermont to stock the shop. The displays throughout the space are inviting and Jess is super friendly. And the best part is that the prices are reasonable and when you purchase anything, instead of printing a receipt, Jess logs the transaction into her iPhone and e-mails your receipt. Don't you love it?
Here are a few photo highlights to give you a taste of the shop:
