Just sighted: www.smithsonianstore.com
The mission: This month, the Nation's Attic clicked into cyber shopping.
The new site highlights merchandise sold in the Smithsonian mail-order catalog and in the 16 Smithsonian museum shops, as well a few things available only online.
The stuff: Home furnishings from around the world, as well as reproductions of classics of design, such as Tiffany-style lamps and 1936 Crosley radio replicas.
The home accessories department offers woven leather magazine baskets, jade silk pillows and Russian cobalt dinnerware. A search feature lets you skim for gifts for astronaut lovers or antique telephone buffs.
