A bookshop-cafe-gallery-zakka store, VVG Something packs a lot into a space the size of a closet. Part of the budding VVG lifestyle mini-empire of restaurants and boutiques, it's the perfect spot for browsing on a rainy afternoon. Among recent finds: old-fashioned Taiwanese letterpress blocks, retro wind-up toys, and elaborate children's pop-up books. Oh, and a stuffed bird.
The surrounding neighborhood is worth exploring, filled with one-of-a-kind boutiques and cozy coffee shops. Come in the late afternoon, when most of the businesses are just opening their doors.
