Kobo at Higo

Sometimes life gets in the way, and we need a little help being our naturally thoughtful selves. Part gallery, Kobo at Higo features the work of Japanese and American artists, with a focus on ceramics. Part store, the space holds an eclectic mix of jewelry, cards, and unique objects you can actually afford. It's as though some stylish fairy godmother opened a boutique and stocked it with just the right things, from $25 to $100, for all your friends. The space's most wonderful feature are the old glass cabinets in the back, which hold over 60 years of trinkets and merchandise from the original general store that reigned here (called Higo). None are available for purchase, but the sense grabs hold of you that Kobo is the rare, serendipitous replacement for what came before.—Maggie Savarino
