New York City has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around our fantastic city that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

When it comes to finding cool furniture in New York City, there are plenty of stores. But when it comes to finding cool, affordable furniture, Nadeau Furniture on E. 11th Street is my go-to spot. Somehow, these fine folks have figured out a way to offer wholesale—yes, wholesale—prices to the public, so everything is well-priced and has a ton of character. The store's tagline "Furniture With A Soul" could not be more spot-on. There's so much character to everything they sell, from shabby chic pieces to industrial options in a variety of styles of colors. My fiancé and I are in the process of closing on a co-op just a few blocks away, and our new home is going to end up looking like an extension of this awesome store.
