24 AMAZING treasures you can find at Flying Tiger NYC

"It's like IKEA, but for junk," one shopper said as she eyed a rainbow bamboo place mat at Flying Tiger on Monday.

The first U.S. outpost of the popular Copenhagen store -- which already has over 400 shops in Europe and Asia -- opened this past weekend, bringing thousands of treasures to NYC. Low priced trinkets and tchotchkes galore line the wrap-around aisle of this neat (and we mean both tidy and very cool) store.

From hedgehog tape dispensers to conjoined rain ponchos for couples, pretty much everything you didn't know you needed is available in the new Flatiron store!

Here are some of our favorites.
