New York Report: gominyc

I just spent five days taking in New York's eco-offerings in spite of what has become my new favorite phrase: "inclement weather." I did ok even without the new Green Apple Map. Unfortunately, the inclement weather made the Swapo-rama-rama a no go but it didn't stop Jill Danyelle and and me from trudging through post-inclement slush on Monday to check out gominyc. The East Village one-stop eco-shop houses a surprising bounty for such a little place: gift-worthy housewares, accessories, clothes and sundries, many of which are re-fashioned and have graced the TreeHugger pages. It was fun to feel the Delano Collection organic wool coats in person. In fact, I wished I had replaced my wimpy San Francisco wrap with one pre-inclement weather. Oh well. I snagged a smart pair of updated vintage bauble earrings, part of a collection made exclusively for gomi. How could I resist thank you cards for my hosts, made from old record album covers? I couldn't. :: gominyc
