Abodeon

Sure, you could pick out a nice blender from the registry. But for a more original present, hit up Abodeon. The store’s vintage and modern furniture and home accessories will outshine and outlast any kitchen appliance. Choose a set of ’70s-era martini glasses for your bon vivant of an uncle, a bamboo magazine rack for your big sister, or go for broke with a Danish modern table you’ll inevitably decide to keep for yourself.
