Elizabeth Gilbert Pictured in her Shop - Two Buttons

Can't get enough of Elizabeth Gilbert and her globe trotting journey in her book - Eat, Pray, Love?  Yearning for a piece of Asian inspiration in the form of a Buddha Head, Altar Table, Prayer Beads, or Traditional Textiles?  Then a must shopping (and sight seeing) trip to Gilbert's shop - Two Buttons - is your next adventure.  Located in Frenchtown, NJ, the 8,000 square foot warehouse showcases the wares and finds picked up by Gilbert & husband Jose Nunes (know to the world as Felipe in her book), during their travels. With 2 shipping containers filled with their local market treasures, Gilbert acquired the former electronics factory to set up a retail storefront.  On your visit, be sure to set aside some time to linger down the shop pathways lined with global artifacts and let your eye wander over the hand selected hand crafted objects and accessories.  If nothing else, take away a taste of Gilbert's far reaching life inspiring voyage imported closer to home for all to experience and enjoy.  For more info, check out this link to an article in today's Style Section of the NY Times.
