The Shape of Lies® is 98% pure nyc.  We showcase local artists so can offer unique designs & signature pieces from small designers.

Opened in 1979 we're the last Mom & Pop residential storefront left in the East Village.  As our neighbors know; when the lights on you can always knock for gifting emergencies....we live in the back!

ANCIENT ARTISANS® is our own line of museum replica jewelry.  Inspired by ancient craftsmen it's been sold at The New York Public Library, Cooper-Hewitt Museum of Design & Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

Hope our DESIGNERS excite your imagination and we look forward to seeing you in the shop soon.  We're always happy to recommend local eateries, after all half the fun of "shopping” the East Village is “eating” the East Village.  Cheers!
