In an age when many e-commerce websites publish magazines, it only makes sense that an online store (hickorees.com) would develop a brick-and-mortar operation. The retailer's owners/designers, Emil and Sandy Corsillo, are behind the incredibly successful tie-and-accessories line The Hill-Side, and the shop's selection of other brands is very well researched. It carries Japanese lines like Kapital, for instance, that are usually found only in Japan. Nearly all of the apparel bears "Made in USA" or "Made in Japan" labels, but the store's buyers have gone beyond the usual suspects in those categories to unearth gems from the likes of Dana Lee and Blue Blue Japan. Even so, a trip here doesn't need to break the bank. Hickoree's stocks a wealth of intriguing knickknacks and accessories in the $20-and-under range that make for perfect keepsakes, like old-fashioned baseballs, mid-century American candies and soaps and lotions.
