We kid, we kid. Though still somewhat hamstrung by a web of legislative indecision regarding exactly what they can sell, the first legal medical marijuana dispensary just opened in the Ivanhood after much anticipation. Housed in an stark, bunker-esque storefront, once you get past the heavy (yet dapper) security, you're inside a clean, minimalist wonderland that's halfway between IKEA and an art film. Here's hoping the Florida Legislature decides to get with the times and implement the will of the people soon (full THC!).

Gypset

gypsetcollective.com

Taking its name from the early-2000s coinage combining "gypsy" with "jet set" (cf. Julia Chaplin's coveted trilogy for publisher Assouline), Sam Redding's Gypset provides boho-chic adornment in a wide range of price points for both Coachella princesses and more-prim types. Go for a subtle turquoise cuff, or load up neck, wrists and ears with pieces dripping in geodes, quartz crystals, gemstones and rare hardwoods. Find the mobile boutique by following @gypsetco on Instagram or checking the website; Redding's adorable renovated trailer is posted outside East End Market for the month of August.
