You can find good deals on clothing, home furnishings and leather goods such as pocket books and shaving kits, but no particular store stands out. Walk the length of the street and listen to the vendors yell, "check it out, check it out" until a price and an item suit you. Prices, by the way, are negotiable. Many stores on Orchard Street are still Jewish owned and closed on Saturday. |
Start at Canal and walk down Mott St. There are gift shops all
along the way. Price items as you walk. They can vary pretty wildly.
Slippers at Pearl River Mart on Canal and Broadway are 2 pairs for $5. On Mott and Pell they're 2 for $3.50. This stuff might be common to a New Yorker but to relatives out of town it's exotic. My favorite store for pretty little dishes, tea in tins, ginger in beautiful ceramic pots, etc. is Kam Kuo at the bottom of Mott on the west side of the street.
