PADDED: It’s a fully functional wallet, with credit card slots and interior pockets galore – but it’s also a miniature mattress (right down to the “do not remove” caution tag), a cheeky nod to a (perhaps more secure?) place to stash your cash than in banks or mortgages. The mattress wallet is $24 at Fred Flare, 131 Meserole Avenue, Greenpoint, Brooklyn; 718-349-1257.
DOUBLE TAKE: Once you’re done wiping up the drool from coveting Alexander McQueen’s nearly $1200 Pelle booties, skip on over to Steve Madden, whose Seryna bootie is a much, much cheaper doppelganger ($129.95). Find your closest store here.
OLD-FASHIONED: Hand-penning your return address is so much nicer than using those peel-and-stick labels – but if you’re doing a bunch of envelopes, ouch. Instead, order one of these “hand-written” rubber stamps, $65 at Park Slope’s Paper Love; 178A Lincoln Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-783-1383.
