Where should I go to buy an interesting menorah in New York City?

Yes, haha, spoiled for choice here and all that, but I need a hanukkah menorah, and my curiosity about how to find the right one has burned for far longer than eight days and nights. Having recently stopped moving around a lot, I find I don't own one and I'd like to. Google and seasonal blog roundups make it readily apparent where to go to spend a lot of money on a new one; what I'm looking for here is anecdotal recommendations for a shop or neighborhood for more interesting and affordable choices - and to see some in person.
I wouldn't mind something secondhand. I'd prefer something interesting or quirky. I don't want to break the bank. Of Apartment Therapy's roundup
, the one from Crate & Barrel
is the price range I want but a little boring in its design. I guess I'm trying to find something that falls in the middle of the range you get the Jewish Museum shop
- not lego bricks with candle-holders, but not a very traditional symmetric one. (If I had any handcraft ability I would make one, I suppose)
