Who knew Brooklyn would smell so good? Developed by a neurologist in Boerum Hill, Eau de Brooklyn started out as a hobby and eventually turned into products like soap and eau de parfum. I happened upon a bottle in DUMBO at Loopy Mango [great store by the way!] and am completely hooked! Great as a gift!

five and a half is a brooklyn based bookmaking and design studio started by Judy Lee. All the journals are lightweight, sustainable, and feature the art of some great photographers and illustrators. I got to see the Bushwick journal while at Cog and Pearl this past weekend, and completely fell in love. Great for gifts!

Deadly Squire makes some great products in even greater fabrics! Pouches, ties, trays, pillows, you name it….they probably have it. Check out their goods at their website or at Rare Device [my source for all things fabulously Brooklyn].

There are a few things I love about Amy Adams, designer for Perch ceramics….1) her products are handmade in Brooklyn 2) She went to Pratt (go Pratt!) and 3) her pieces are totally cute, functional, and make great gifts!
I’ve already gotten the small perch basket for myself and keep it near the kitchen to drop my ring in on the rare occasion I wash some dishes It looks great next to my Pamela Barksy piggy bank…
