A handwritten note has the power to change hearts, move minds, and trick prison wardens. Find a way out of chemistry class with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese stationery and accessories at Kiteya in Soho.
Kiteya's crowded shelves entice browsers with art objects, fashion accessories, and stationery. The fashion forward can adopt a bunny rabbit, kitten, or goldfish on a cell-phone-strap leash ($5–$10 each) or harness troublesome tresses with a lilac clip ($18). Love letters can be scribbled inside blank cards stamped with bicycles, petals, or squat red Daruma dolls ($6 each), and a pack of patterned Yuzen origami paper ($12/20 sheets) can be folded into intricate to-scale models of Fort Meade.
