Funky and Functional
If any aspect of your living space needs a colorful makeover, head to North Park’s new home store, Kaleidoscope. Its vibrant kitchenware, home accents, and gift items run the gamut from bright oven mitts and spatulas to felt birdhouses and hipster socks with cool catchphrases, all at super-reasonable—I-think-I-need-10-of-these reasonable!—prices. The average price tag is $10. We love the Core multicolored chevron-striped plates and serveware. Opened by North Park residents Lee and Becki Kaplan, the shop also offers bimonthly professional knife sharpening in partnership with Urban Solace. Now that’s sharp service!
