Zakka (127 Plymouth St.) in DUMBO has an assortment of art-related books, materials and other fun things related to J-pop, but I was after the art in the gumball machines at the back of the store.

For $3 you get a token from the cashier to use on these machines, and I knew exactly what I was after — the machine with the mini-version of famous paintings at the Musée d’Orsay. It’s always great to buy art, no matter what size.
