The back half of this former railroad-car garage serves as a workplace for the talents behind the labels Eventide, Uluru, and Made Her Think; the front is home to a retail operation that sells their collections, plus goods from other local designers.

60 N. Sixth St., Brooklyn, 718-384-1990,


Everything at this hyper-original design emporium in Dumbo feels wildly special—laser-cut plywood mobiles, Steiff mohair polar bears and rabbit-shaped night-lights could work just as well in a kid's playroom as in a grown-up's cheery studio.

Brook Farm General Store

Chock-full of the homey (wool blankets), the necessary (frying pans) and the endearingly random (Lithuanian handstitched leather key covers), this sunny mom-and-pop is 
the kind of shop we 
wish we could live

Brooklyn Flea

Founded in 2008 by a pair of enterprising Brooklynites, this multi-venue flea is a top destination for tourists and locals alike. There’s a tight curation of antiques dealers, handmade goods, and an array of local food vendors. For dedicated gastronomes, however, the all-food Smorgasburg market is a must-visit. The panoply of local fare includes Red Hook Lobster Pound's buttery rolls and irresistible doughnuts from Bed-Stuy's own Dough. Multiple locations, brooklynflea​.com


We love the consistent selection of Tulle, 
BB Dakota and Ark & Co., plus the well-edited racks of feminine cocktail dresses and ladylike work pieces. And 
it's all presented in appealing, antique-inspired Victorian decor.

French Garment Cleaners Co.

Steven Alan vets 
Alec Stuart and Celeste Wright kept the original signage at this gorgeously renovated, ash-wood-accented former dry cleaner, but replaced the washing machines with A.P.C., Rachel Comey and Rag 
& Bone.

Le Grand Strip

If you had a chic Parisian grandmother — particularly one whose past lives included a stint at the Moulin Rouge — this is what her 
closet might look 
like: leopard-print handbags, suede pumps, frilly nighties and brightly colored silk dresses from 
the 1960s.


197 Grand St., 718-599-3525,

Moon River Chattel

Restored maple tables, sturdy wood hutches and old-school file cabinets 
(all expertly refurbished in a nearby workshop) 
are used to display quirky smaller 
items like vintage stained-glass light fixtures and 
table linens.


62 Grand St., 718-388-1121,

Perry Gargano

It makes sense that shop owner Perry Gargano once created exhibits for the Museum of Natural History. His sculptural, nature-inspired jewelry—like a sterling silver hummingbird skull pendant necklace—manages to blend animal imagery with Brothers Grimm creepiness.


242 Grand St.,


Eric Famisan and Sarah Ryhanen's hand-cut olive-oil-based soaps are sold worldwide, but only 
at their freestanding, secret garden-esque Red Hook shop can you scoop them up along with Ryhanen's impossibly gorgeous seasonal floral bouquets.


147 Van Dyke St., 718-624-2929,

Smith + Butler

The James Dean brand of rugged, white-T-shirted Americana is repackaged in the form of this casual clothing-and-lifestyle shop that sells 
vintage motorcycles alongside tried-and-true Pendleton geo-print cardigans, Billykirk leather bags and The Hill-Side scarves.


225 Smith St., 718-855-4295,

Stella Dallas Living and 10 Ft. Single

One's a veritable Everest of vintage textiles, composed of floral bedsheets, embroidered curtains, midcentury American flags and burlap 
sacks. The other houses more cool 
'70s logo tees than Keith Richards'
