The folks at CNN took a road trip to Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert's Frenchtown, New Jersey, shop. We hear it's really cute. CNN reports: "Based in a pale yellow warehouse, the shop is nearly 8,000 square feet. Its floors are crammed full of items, mostly from South Asia. There are giant stone statues, ornate wooden furniture, grinning colorful masks, bowls of shiny jewelry, flowy scarves and more. On the days it is open, Wednesday through Friday, the store sees a steady stream of customers who come to ooh and ahh over the items and, of course, see if they can catch sight of Gilbert." [CNN]
