Leekan Designs

On a beautiful Tuesday afternoon meeting up with friends in Soho, as I am walking down Rivington I see this store name Leekan Designs, slow down and peep in and wow! This store is home to amazing overseas influenced wonders!! African and Asian are the main influences, this isn't just a street mart find, they have real objects from Africa and Asia. I couldn't close my mouth, and I wanted to spend my last pennies in there 'til my friend yanked me out of there! Thanx

Well enough are the beauties:

Necklaces with stones and beads from different countries in Africa which they inform you of on the tags.


And you can even create your own necklace or bracelet choosing from there abundant selection of beads and trinkets.

Mirrors beautifully hand crafted...



And umm Glass Eggs?? (shrugs) but they are cool! They turn iridescent when in water, beautiful accent for the home I think.

This is just a few items I found online... you should really head on over there and check it out for yourself. Luckily I shared this I wanted to keep the place all to myself. lol

Here's a lil preview:
