The Driehaus Museum is bringing the lavish Gilded Age to 2013 with their newly opened Museum Store. Located in a former guest bedroom in the 1883 mansion at 40 E. Erie Street, the shop has curated a selection of gifts and decorations that serve as the ultimate conversation starters—from 19th century books to scissors made of bone. Each item is displayed on furniture from the Driehaus Collection, making it a seamless transition from the museum itself. Good news if you're a member: You'll receive 10% off your Museum Store purchase.—Moira Lawler
