It had to happen. There had to be a way to take home a little piece of artisanal New York in a handy package. Voila, the GoodHoodGoods line of neighborhood gift buckets (brought to market with a little help from yours truly). Each GHG bucket represents a different neighborhood and includes gems from local makers like Baggu, Chocolat Moderne, and the Good Home Company.

Buckets are on sale at the Milford Hotel in Midtown and can be ordered online right here.

This vintage Navajo ring, with a stylized leaf motif around the edges, was pawned and then put on eBay. "Not the most romantic provenance," says our friend Michael Colberg. He goes on to note that he has traveled the Southwest and developed an eye for these sorts of pieces, pawned or not. In any case, it's a beaut, and, for $220 (reg. $260), it could be yours. (Would make a lovely Valentine's gift, no?) Expires Sun Jan 9.

The 70s look so much better through the lens of documentary-style photographer Paul McDonough. See photos that capture the spirit of hippie NYC, like this one, where a couple is caught kissing in Central Park. (Is the figure in the middle a woman or man? We suspect drag.)

First show takes place this Saturday at 11:30pm; at $20, the tickets are a serious steal, especially considering Bond is of the caliber to win praise from the tough cookies at the New Yorker.
