What's your Habitat

Domus is a wonderful home goods store. When they first opened, they were called Habitat. They expanded with a store in Old Town called The Dutch Fox. These were the best places to get a present for your mother. Domus is also a great place to go to get unusual drink glasses. We get most of our Scotch tumblers there. What I like is that you can buy one at a time or sets.
Domus used to be the only place where you could get unusual kitchen gadgets like a shrimp de-veiner.

Eventually, Sur La Table moved in down the street, and it appears that there's room for everyone here. Domus still has a lot of gadgets but has expanded more into really unique dinnerware. I think Domus has become more what the Dutch Fox used to be.

One other cool thing of note...where the cards are located in Domus? That used to be the original Steamers restaurant and you could get a huge bowl of steamed clams in a nice broth. They opened up a new location in Old Town called Steamers Too. Now they're located across the street near Sur La Table and they go by the name Steamers Grillhouse.
