Time Out NY The security to get into this global boutique may be stricter than that to get on an international flight, but once you're safely ensconced you'll have access to a wealth of products, all organized by country. Each display houses its nation's claim to fame, like Victorian-style garnet jewelry ($40--$400) from the Czech Republic, Technicolor hand-blown glass vases ($33) from Poland and flamenco dancer figurines ($104) from Spain. Brand names have no significance to Hanaa Shoukry, the enthusiastic Director of Purchasing and Merchandise, who hand-selects each item based on history, tradition and culture.
