Local Finds — Green Village in Bushwick, Brooklyn

Local Finds — Green Village in Bushwick, Brooklyn

Why do we love thrift shops so much? Is it the goods themselves? Or that feeling that comes with finding something truly unique, the thrill of the deal, the epiphany of discovery? While some shops offer a carefully curated collection of goods presented to perfection in an airy, idealized display room (offering the thrill without all the work), others offer an experience that feels more like entering a hoarder’s den and somehow, against all odds, coming out on top. Green Village Used Clothing and Furniture falls into the latter category which is by no means a criticism

Brass is timeless and a great investment for anyone looking to add a little sophistication to their design.”

I can only remember one time in my childhood where I ate a frozen meal. Growing up in 1980’s and 1990’s, tv dinner meals were all the rage—except in my household. Something about the neat package of brownie, fluorescent-hued corn and square pizza was a novelty for me during the time of Swanson Hungry Man

There’s nothing that brings people together like a good dinner. It’s why we love supper clubs! Not just for the delicious food but for the ways they can foster community. The process of sitting down around a table and enjoying a meal is about so much more than food—it’s about the experience, the conversation and the camaraderie it creates. Sure, there are many supper clubs out there but we’ve picked a few of our favorites that are doing things just a little differently

A perfect dinner party is a difficult thing to achieve. It must be lively but not too lively. Planned but flexible. The playlist has to have a theme, but it can’t be too obvious and the decor should “go together” but anything too “matchy matchy” is doomed. We here at Krrb appreciate the subtle touches that make a dinner really memorable. It’s why we’ve decided to bring you pairings of dining table and dinner guests that work at that undetectable level to ensure a dinner party success.We’ve also paired it up with a drink to get you started. You’re on your own for the menu

If you often find yourself wondering how you can add some personality to your home, decorating a bookshelf is a fun and easy place to start! It’s also great since you can use items you already have, so it won’t be an expensive project. We’ve given some of our favorite tips to turn your bookcase from drab to fab!

Krrb Presents Quick Tips— How To Style Your Bookcase

One of the easiest things you can do is simply organize your books by arranging them in small stacks with one larger book leaning against them or by grouping books by color themes—the options are endless! Here at Krrb, we like to add tiny knickknacks to our shelves to add pops of character—you can add candles, bookends like green Blenko owl bookends, vases, plants, figurines like this brass seal or even your favorite fashion pieces. These small pieces will bring your shelves to life! Another important thing to keep in mind is that our eyes travel in a “Z” formation so it’s a great idea to add focal points to the areas where our eyes are naturally drawn to create an aesthetically pleasing display. Now it’s time to clear your shelves and start from scratch, and remember that there’s no wrong way to do it!

Sharing Economy — Little Free Library Unites Brooklyn Neighborhood Bookworms

I have always loved books. Until recently, going to the New York Public Library after work to pick up books I’ve reserved online was a regular joyous event. Luckily I don’t have to even leave my neighborhood now to get some new reading material. The wonderful people at Little Free Library have set up shop right on my street in Park Slope where neighbors practice “take a book, leave a book” with each other
