1) Clary & Co.: The West Village's loss is Tribeca's gain, as uber-pricey antiques shop Clary & Co., forced from their Bleecker Street location due to a buy out by Coach, has found a new home. The store, known for its impeccably-curated selection of 18th to 20th century furniture, kitchenware and accessories, is currently open by appointment only at its new location in a loft warehouse on Franklin Street. (139 Franklin St at W. Broadway, sixth floor; 212-229-1773) [NY Mag]
2) Diana Kane: Designer Diana Kane must be doing pretty well. She opened her eponymous shop on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope five years ago, and recently opened another boutique close by on Seventh Avenue. The stores carry wares for women like jewelry, bags, lingerie and clothing from Loomstate, Edun, Velvet, Lewis Cho and Only Hearts.

3) Jeneral Store: Chelsea has a new denim boutique. Jeneral Store stocks jeans for men and women (from labels like Nobody, Habitual and Serfontaine) as well as dresses, tops, accessories and even furniture. The focus of the shop is up-and-coming designers; owners are brand consultant Jennifer Baginski, former Replay employee Michael Scott and Jennifer Plass, who had previously worked as a men's buyer for Bloomingdales.

4) Bowery Kitchen East: This chefs' resource is a spin off of nearby Bowery Kitchen Supplies. According to Flo Fab, the place specializes in knives and kitchen whites. (5 Rivington St at Bowery, 212-477-8681) [NY Times, third item]
5) Union: As we noted a month ago, streetwear shop Union has relocated to a new storefront in Soho. The place is now open and High Snobiety's got pics of the colorful array of t-shirts, hoodies, hats and sneakers offered within. [High Snobiety]
6) Louis Feraud: Another shop for rich old ladies has opened on Madison Avenue. According to NY Mag, Louis Feraud will appeal most to a woman "who’d like to think she’ll spend her time yachting, going on safari, or dancing at galas." Exciting. (717 Madison Ave between 63rd and 64th Sts, 212-980-1919). [NY Mag]
