This is Store Sidekicks, our new video feature in which we profile the fuzzy wuzzy creatures who inhabit shops around the city.
Meet Merlin: the Angora bunny that inhabits Condor on Elizabeth Street. If you haven't met this fluffy little guy yet, know that he's kind of a big deal—he has over 1,000 followers on Instagram, and has appeared in GQ and a commercial for Nordstrom. He's also really damn cute and thoroughly enjoys eating carrots.
