More and More

On the Upper West Side of Manhattan is a tiny shop with the perfect name of More & More. Especially during December, it is a stellar example of the art of design maximalism. Painted pewter Santas stand in the window and dangle from the edges of cake stands. Orchestras of  angels play unheard music for stern wooden Saint Nicks. Look beyond the snowmen, birds, and  reindeer hanging from the ceiling and you will discover glittering paper houses and snow-dusted trees. How much more can the friendly and creative owners possibly cram into this wonderland of a shop? More and more every time, it seems.
