Pearl River Mart
(between Broome St & Grand St)
New York, NY 10013
From $1 spatulas to $25 "exotic" lanterns, Pearl River Mart in SoHo has everything you could want for less than you'd expect. Whether you need window blinds or room dividers (from $67.50), chances are you'll find it at Pearl River. True, most of the stuff is just cheap crap, and if you're not careful, you'll have an impulse buy or two (anyone who needs a Feng-Shui Buddha, please let me know), but this is a great place to stock up on kitchenware and stuff for the apartment.
Amazing deals on apartments are lurking right around the corner, if you know where to look, and when.
