When it comes to online shopping, it's easy to get stuck in a rut—yep, there are always great finds at Mr Porter, and mall staples like J. Crew will keep you laced in daily basics. But sometimes you want something unique from a digital storefront that feels as special as walking into a brick-and-mortar store. Enter Kaufmann Mercantile, a New York-based online shop that's focused on well-designed, long-lasting goods. Featured products debut twice a week; the site touts that equal importance is given to "functionality, durability and aesthetic." None of the items are mass-produced, and they feel like heirlooms you'll want to take care of forever. Although there's something for everyone—including home goods, tools, office and kitchen gear—we've picked out a selection under $30 that you shouldn't pass up.
