As the East and West Village continue to evolve, the mom and pop independent shops seems to be disappearing. One by one, storefronts have changed from wine shops to Walgreens. One nice addition to the East Village on E.2nd St is the John Derian shop. The prices are a bit too steep for my wallet-- Ravena Flea Market it ain't-- but the atmosphere and the designs are inspired. The collage-style glassware makes each cakestand and serving dish a functional piece of art work and I'm thinking one might make a great bridal shower gift.
