Since 1970, the shop has been run by a family that has worked extensively in foreign aid and has used its connections and experience to source unique items from around the globe.

This traditional white Colonial is a mecca for exotica thanks to Jeffrey Kennedy and his mother, Olga. Both lived in Asia for years, settled here, and now scour the globe for unusual clothing, crafts, jewelry, furniture, and decorative items, including Asian, African, and Pacific Islands art and antiques. How about a bracelet of 14,000-year-old Alaskan mammoth ivory ($150) or a three-foot-high 19th-century Burmese Buddha ($13,000)? Bargains abound (lapis necklaces $26, quality Indonesian pottery $12, mini Buddhas $5). Open Mon.-Sat. 10-5:30, Sun. noon-5.
