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.

Andre J is, among other things, a former perfume sales associate at Lord & Taylor, a publicist for Patricia Field's boutique, a NYC party host, and a onetime French Vogue cover star. Currently working on a platform called Stand Up for Fashion (with an event on October 24th), Andre pointed us to his favorite shop for handcrafted incense and dream catchers.
I absolutely love Stick, Stone & Bone. I recommend this place because to me, life is all about energy and this is the place that I turn to for my spiritual and meditational needs. Best of all, their Spiritual Sage Incense is handcrafted! They have oils, crystals, tarot card, atmospheric music and Native American Feathers and Dream catchers that I adore. Also, besides a relaxing environment to shop in, the inside of the store provides the ultimate relaxation shopping experience.· Stick, Stone & Bone [Official Site]
