Shops on Mott Street
Running through Chinatown and NoLIta in New York City, Mott Street is a busy strip populated by an eclectic mix of Asian eateries, designer clothing stores, restaurants, and independent boutiques. If you happen to be in the area, check out these six Mott Street shops for some quality browsing – or perhaps, an impromptu shopping spree.
Warm NY, 181 Mott St
Husband and wife team, Rob Magnotta and Winnie Beattie, refer to themselves as “urban hippies” and used their passion for travel and the outdoors as inspiration behind Warm NY. With collections for men, women, kids and the home, Warm is stocked with small batch items and handmade details you won’t find at larger chain stores. If you love living in the city as well as traveling the world, this is the shop for you.
New & Almost New, 171A Mott St
For style mavens looking to don designer labels, New & Almost New is the spot. Fashionista and owner Maggie Chan stocks apparel, footwear, handbags, and accessories from the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Armani at this Mott Street consignment shop.
Stick With Me, 202A Mott St
Fuel your shopping spree and stop by Stick With Me for a sweet treat. This tiny shop is known for its tasty bonbons that are not only filled with gourmet centers, but coated with an impeccably designed shell. In other words, they’re “almost” too pretty to eat.
Fjällräven Nolita, 262 Mott St
Planning on an outdoor excursion this summer? Arm yourself with the proper equipment, which can be found at Fjällräven (bonus points if you can pronounce it). This Swedish store has everything from tents to sturdy backpacks, focusing on sustainable production and eco-friendly materials.
Milk Bar Mini, 246 Mott St
Dessert lovers shouldn’t miss Christina Tosi’s beloved Milk Bar, the ideal shop to satisfy your sugar craving after a long day of shopping. Indulge in a Compost Cookie or opt for a to-go box of B’Day Truffles to share with your friends.
Piccolini NYC, 167 Mott St
Next time your co-worker has a baby, head downtown to Piccolini NYC. This quirky children’s shop has a wonderful selection of unique clothes, books and gifts for newborns, toddlers, and kids up to age five.
Not into sweets? There’s coffee nearby too. Try Café Grumpy or Gimme! Coffee, both on Mott Street.
