Urban Cottage's whimsically upscale stock contains treasures of all varieties, including jewelry, bags and purses, home décor, creative gifts, and various other sundries of singular charm. Gently swaddle an infant with muslin baby blankets ($30), or gift a piece of local artwork such as an angel face made of hurricane debris ($38). No two pieces of folk art are the same, so pawing through Urban Cottage's richly appointed shelves is like catching snowflakes with a tiny butterfly net. Designer items, such as O-N-E stationery ($18), Uglydolls keychains and dolls ($7.50–$22.50), and Anne Taintor napkins, creatively complement any party. Hand-picking your favorite piece is the only guaranteed way to make it match your style and basement full of nutrias.
