When you're looking for truly unique gifts or accoutrements, the internet’s a treasure trove — but to find the good stuff amongst all the crap, you'd have to be a master curator, or just really good at never having anything else to do, ever.
Launched by a foreign policy analyst-turned-inveterate flea market hound, Bureau of Trade sifts through eBay and Craigslist to find sui generis conversation pieces for your closet and your home. Bureau doesn't own the merch, they just direct you to it. Two standout curations include:
Bureau's proprietor scours Bermondsey, Kathmandu, and Tel Aviv (among other locales) for his wares. He'll hunt down items on request should nothing catch your eye, or if you're too busy doing all those things you do.
