  • Laundry mavens: Gardenista founding editor Michelle Slatalla’s latest design column in the WSJ involves clothes line etiquette; go to Who Knew a Clothes Line Could Be So Controversial?
  • Currently on view at Brooklyn gallery Russell Janis: “Big Daisy Textile Space,” an exhibit featuring the work of Remodelista favorite Annie Coggan and artist Janis Stemmermann. Go to Russell Janis for more info.
  • Mark your calendars: On Saturday, July 20, from 9 am to noon, LA shop Nickey Kehoe is putting on a summer warehouse sale. Act fast.
  • On Saturday, July 13th from 5 pm to 7pm, Picture Room in Brooklyn Heights presents a talk with a trio of artists, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the United States’ final commercial Morse code transmission, “What hath god wrought?” For info, go to Picture Room.
  • Our friend Asako emailed to say she paid a visit to the new Muji shop at Hudson Yards: “It’s two floors and they have a coffee and matcha stand. Also, they have a new monograming service for towels, sneakers, T-shirts, and tote bags.”
  • Lovers of ugly vegetables and fruits (and bargains): check out the Misfits Market, a newish CSA box delivery service (priced accordingly).
