MO IS LESS: We’re sure of few things in life, but we know this: Every single gift-giving dilemma can be solved by a trip to the MoMA Store. Their Summer Sale is up online; save up to 50 percent on gobs of great stuff (like these lovely Mexico-made caterpillar bowls, $99.95 from $150) for the home, the kids, and you.
BAR NONE: Our first step toward home cocktails usually involves dislodging the freezer Stoli from bags of edamame and Trader Joe’s mini-quiches. In our minds, however, we are way chic-er than this, and instead sexily wheel out a bar cart. The always keen-eyed Design*Sponge has a fabulous bar-cart roundup (love the Circa one!).
STOCK UP: French Sole, the uptown boutique known for ballerina flats, is slashing prices on all kinds of unique footwear, from linen espadrilles ($59, from $170) to suede ballet flats ($105 from $210). 985 Lexington Avenue at 71st Street; 212-737-2859.
