This upscale housewares and hardware store caters to a discerning clientele. Gracious Home stocks more than 150,000 items, including hardware supplies, dazzling French crystal finials, cookware, electronics, imported bed linens, hard-to-find needlepoint tissue-box holders and everyday items like clothes hangers. Opened as a small shop in 1963, Gracious Home has grown into several locations throughout the City, but each still feels like a mom-and-pop shop.
