Shopper’s Diary: Glassybaby in New York

One of our favorite Seattle sources, Glassybaby, has just opened a shop in New York City, at 555 Hudson Street in the West Village. Founder Lee Rhodes began producing Glassybabies—vibrantly colored, handblown glass votives—in 1998; the vessels are now  available in more than 150 colors and can be used as glasses (they’re dishwasher safe), candle holders, vases, or simply tabletop jewels. Through the Glassybaby Goodwill program, Rhodes (a cancer survivor herself) is donating 10 percent of sales to Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Glassybabies are simply stunning—stop by and see for yourself; prices are $40 per 3.75-inch-high votive.
