Local toy & home curiosity boutique MODULE R, dedicated to “modular, reconfigurable & customizable modern design,” which opened last December at 141 Atlantic Avenue, got some props from Melissa Liebling-Goldberg, women’s editorial director at high-end clothier & home website Gilt.com (and former style director at People).
Racked.com has been asking New York shopping & fashion gurus to share their fave hidden shopping gems. Liebling-Goldberg names MODULE R as her go-to destination for men’s gifts. She writes: “For my puzzle addict brother-in-law, a clock with puzzle pieces that can be rearranged into myriad configurations on the wall. For my 15-month-old nephew, it’s mobiles and stacking toys from Sweden. And for my architect husband, I could basically blindfold myself and turn in a circle pointing and he’d like whatever I landed on. The store isn’t small and it’s filled floor to ceiling (really, don’t forget to look up) with unique items that would look as nice in your home as they would in a gift bag going to friends. Even better is its proximity to Colonie for a drink and snack post-shopping spree.”
