New Store Obsession: Chinatown Storytelling Center’s online gift shop

Beautiful homewares, nifty stationery and adorable socks are waiting for you.


If you’re trying to spend less money, stop reading this now. Don’t go to Chinatown Storytelling Center’s new online gift shop and look at these ramen socks.

Or the Baozi salt and pepper shakerswho come in their own little bamboo steamer.

Or this “you are nice” Asian snack menu.

The gift shop, called Foo Hung Curios, has been in operation since the Storytelling Center opened last November, but the online store just opened today. It is much easier to buy lots of adorable things and spend lots of adorable money. Already things are selling out fast, proving that the rest of you have about as much self-control as I do.

The store has a ton of cute plates, as well as the aforementioned printed socks and plenty of candles, postcards, and vases. There are also art prints of local favorites that I can’t wait to plaster my walls with – for example, this Phnom Penh print (it’s $15 – come on).
