Village Voice's Description
The minute Daily 235 began by selling Kismet chewing gum and the daily papers. Now whether it's Japanese caramels packaged to look like red and white dice or orange and yellow vinyl pencil pouches, the limited number of objects keeps the selection quirky, not kitschy. Pick up an Egyptian cat eraser or a box of beautifully packaged chocolate cigarettes from Holland, tuck in a pair of old-fashioned bubble ponytail holders, add an orange Rhodia notebook, and your holiday shopping is done. For hedonists, there are Votivo candles, soap, and incense, and a tantric yoga calendar. Next year in nirvana.
