Finding the right outfits for heading back to school is easy in the East Village, which is home to a host of local boutiques featuring a rich variety of clothing. EVGB residents will love checking out the duds at An.Mé, where they’ll find adorable handmade shoes shaped like deer, capes, hoodies, and even sunglasses that are sure to be a hit. Ibiza Kidz has been serving Manhattan residents since 1986, offering everything from stylish outfits to toys to custom gift baskets to celebrate the latest academic triumph. Residents who prefer the convenience and value of consignment stores should head to Jane’s Exchange, where keen-eyed shoppers can cultivate the skill of finding hidden gems among the racks.
When it comes to school supplies, the East Village is replete with mom-and-pop stationery shops offering every imaginable type of writing material, as well as quick and efficient printing services.
