Deepest apologies for the week of absence - I haven't been MIA this long since I started loving the little things. Just the typical crazy work week with a bit of personal stuff thrown in... but regardless of last week, I am back and oh-so excited to make up for lost time. So let's get to it ---
Today I bring to you adorable pouches from Gift Shop Brooklyn. Naturally when I saw this shop name (+ eye-catching logo) on etsy I just had to click. I was delighted with the selection of items, all handmade to order in bk using materials purchased on etsy and from other vendors here in the US. Store owner (and seasoned graphic designer in the new york fashion industry) Annie Olean Bukman provides a range of adorable little things, from "sherbet scarves" to reversible linen/leather pouches + more, making this etsy spot really feel like a little gift shop.
If you live in the neighborhood or find yourself in the area, skip the etsy storefront + stop by Brooklyn Collective, which started selling Annie's designs last month --- and is totally worth checking out in its own right! Here is a selection off the loveliest from both:
I love the idea of giving unique little things from the "brooklyn gift shop" to friends + family dwelling outside of my favorite borough. Plus everything ordered on etsy comes wrapped-up and gift-ready - which I'm sure makes it easier to part with these lovely pieces.
Although just to be sure, I would scoop up something extra to open up myself.
