Flying Tiger Copenhagen 920 Broadway, btw. 21st St & 20th St., Flatiron District, (212) 777-1239. I first saw a branch of this colorful Danish store in Reykjavik, Iceland. It grabs your attention with a head-spinning selection of brightly colored home goods and gift items.
The merchandise is arranged along a zig-zag path through the store, sort of like at Ikea, so you get a chance to eyeball everything. I wound up buying several packages of colorful dinner napkins for $1 (I love the ones with little clouds on a sky-blue background), and my daughter bought me a really cute birthday card.
I wish now that I had purchased one of the tins of butter cookies but was concerned about getting them home on an airplane; it turns out I had space.
