Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Following the success of its first pop-up shop in the spring, Forma De Ser is back with founder Rachel Horowitz's curated collection of home goods and accessories from her Latin American travels. Expect unique clutches—like the one pictured above—for $54, blown glass bud vases for $12, and lightweight handwoven wool shawls for $84.

"I look for the hidden treasures that will fit with a New Yorker's forma de ser, or 'way of being,'" said Horowitz of the selection. "I want to offer useful goods and beautiful objects that both the producer and the consumer feel connected to." You can check it all out tomorrow through Sunday, 11am—9pm, at the miLES Storefront on East 4th Street.—Laura Gurfein
