Most people’s first apartments had floors lined with raw oatmeal, a repurposed Twister mat for a bed, and a shower head that intermittently drizzled viscous, jet-black fluid and liquid police sirens. Now that you have the pad of your dreams, pick up some pad padding with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gifts, décor, and more at Kupo in the Kozlov Centre.
At Kupo's 3,000-square-foot emporium, shoppers can peruse a plethora of decorative items imported from near and faraway locales for the purposes of gift giving, garden ornamenting, and home accenting. Patrons can browse the store's large selection of free-trade Indonesian tribal masks (starting at $9.99) or gaze on the warm, salty glow of salt lamps made from Himalayan crystals and genuine sherpa tears (starting at $14.99). Hailing from the other side of the globe, the bazaar's Brazilian amethyst clusters emit their trademark purple radiance (starting at $2.99). Those looking to add aromas to their homes, yurts, or yachts can sniff through Kupo's stock of hand-rolled nag champa incense (starting at $1.49) and triple-scented votive candles ($0.99). The wholesaler also houses an enormous stock of artwork depicting fanciful creatures such as fairies, gargoyles, dragons, and accountants.
