You gotta be careful with digital crushes. Falling for something you can’t have IRL (mega) bites.
Take the love from screen to shelf at Brooklyn Makers’s new shop.
In line with the blog’s MO, the online marketplace sells all things designed and created sustainably in Kings County.
Push through the remaining winter in a woolen aviator hat by Rocks & Salt or jump into hoop earrings and rope-wrapped bangles by K. Hansen Jewelry. On the home front, bleeding-color porcelain pouch, condiment, and cereal bowls hold liquids and your heart. And because sweet nothings are best paired with sweet chocolate things, scoop stationery and cookies.
The kids’ section spells danger: Cashmere dolls by accurately named Snuggly Ugly, monster toys from Really Brothers, and unicorn-horn hair clips are irresistible fare for doting godparents, aunts, and uncles.
Detailed features and profiles for each artisan appear on the blog (should you doubt any of their Brooklyn pedigrees), and additional makers are expected soon. As for what they’ll sell?
Use your imagination.
