EYE FOR AN EYE: When your doctor leaves the exam room, do you ever want to play with those plastic body-part models sitting on the counter next to the antibacterial dispenser? Yeah, we do too. This 35-piece anatomically-correct eyeball puzzle is “suitable for children aged 8 and older”, but who are we kidding? You’re buying it – complete with fact booklet! – for yourself. $19 at The Conran Shop, 407 East 59th Street; 866-755-9079.

WIN-WIN: Through November 25, when you bring in five nonperishable food items to the Soho CB2 store, you’ll receive 15% off your entire shopping trip – including big-ticket items like furniture. The goods go to feed the city’s hungry via City Harvest, and the savings go to spiff up your nest. More information here. CB2, 451 Broadway, 212-219-1454.

KNIT PICKING: Because you can never have too much cashmere, you’ll want to swing by the White + Warren sample sale this week. Womens’ v-necks, turtlenecks and crewnecks are dropped to $85 from $220, while men’s sweaters are now $125, down from $275-300. Accessories like gloves and scarves now start at $30. November 10-12, 80 West 40th Street; 212-398-3295.
