Crystals can be beautiful additions to your life. You can wear them, display them and, if you’re so inclined, use them in practicing your craft. Whatever your use for them is, BTOWN has a list of our go-to crystal shops for your pleasure.
WABI SABI CRYSTALS
25 William St., Paris – Open Wednesday-Saturday
Simply put, wabi-sabi comes from the Japanese aesthetic of finding beauty in imperfection. Natalie McMillan’s shop is definitely beautiful. A bright and well-organized store, you can find hand-crafted objects as well as crystals, wellness items and gifts.
