If it were up to us, shopping would be the official American pastime. (Sorry, baseball.) But as much as we love discovering under-the-radar brands online, ?overwhelming? would be an understatement. (Thanks, page 75 of Etsy.)
That?s why we?ve teamed up with Brika--the ultra-chic online marketplace--to weed through the outer reaches of the Internet and curate our very own pop-up shop. From cheese boards to statement jewelry (and even a few pint-sized infinity scarves for good measure), it?s a clickable candy shop of handmade finds from across the country.
But naturally, we?re inclined to brag on our hometown.
New Yorkers, meet Gift Shop Brooklyn and the cutest clutches this side of the Hudson. Designer Annie Olean Bukhman fashions handheld numbers in American-sourced fabrics and materials, like floral cotton and leather, sequined tulle and metallic linen and patchwork denim, that are, shockingly, only $28 to $80.
Of course, you could always opt for Brooklyn-made bib necklaces or wooden moose bookends instead. But whatever you choose, here?s how we sweeten the deal: You?ll get $10 off your first purchase and free shipping of orders more than $50.
Gifting for Mother?s Day, graduations, baby showers and, let?s be honest, yourself should never be stressful.
