I’m having an Eloise moment (as part of my NYC state of mind), but rather than reside at the Plaza, I want to playfully crash the Coral & Tusk pop-up shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. On a soggy spring day like today (or so says the weather forecast), I would creep in with a clutch of magazines, incognito in this critter ensemble (sold on-site), wait for all employees to disperse for lunch, and lock the doors so I could delight solo in this quirky dreamland. Sprawled on an upholstered couch, I would cozy up in mad plaid cashmere, sip from a spunky ceramic teacup, nibble on vanilla smoke chocolate, futz with a bow and arrow, and let my thoughts sail away with a rakish canoe marooned on a mossy sea.
Daydreaming aside, this retail flight of whimsy, ebulliently dubbed the Coral & Tusk and Friends Spring Extravaganza, is only open until the end of May. Channel Eloise and skibble over to BK.
