Most people’s first apartments had floors lined with raw oatmeal, a re-purposed Twister mat for a bed, and a showerhead 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 $35, you get $70 worth of stylish home accessories, flatware, gifts, and more at Paula Brown Shop, located on Monroe Street. Your Groupon may be used in-store only.
Paula Brown Shop houses an eclectic inventory of products from the United States, Africa, Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. Alessi flatware ($7.50–$26.50 per item) curbs the urge to eat chili with your hands, while Paula Brown's large selection of cookware forever eliminates the use of sharpened boomerangs as food processors. Bar accessories include a Mariposa pearled ice scoop ($34), Michael Aram twig tongs ($45), and an Alessi parrot corkscrew ($42). For friends that are expecting, or for adult friends aging backwards, Paula Brown offers a variety of baby products ($14–$50), as well as a range of collectibles ($22+) for all ages. Paula Brown Shop’s exterior is evocative of a modern-day castle, with its innards aglow with the shine of the sun, warm lighting, and the twinkle of trinkets’ souls.
