NYC. The Cage & local stores
One of the local stores in the West Village had this super cute cat, which would follow you around in the store. Not sure if that is allowed in Norway (to have Pets in your store if you also deal with food and dairies).
One of my favorite local shop was this little magazine store, filled with all kind of cool magazines!! I bought Hypebeast, Brownbook and the magazine from Highsnobiety which are not easy to get in Norway, but could have bought the whole store!
