MiN New York, located on Crosby Street in Soho (the company's name is short for "minute"), got its start as a purveyor of quick hair-color kits for men. These days, the shop caters to gentlemen and gentlewomen alike—offering everything from handmade Plisson shaving brushes to Merkur Solingen razors—as well as a small selection of "curiosities and antiques" for the home, including handmade mesh bird cages and limited-edition furniture from London-based designer Soojin Kang. For more information, visit MiN New York.
