Gowanus Girls Mart opens this weekend in Brooklyn, and we’re excited by the plethora of handmade goods to hit the borough on Saturdays, October 13 and 27. The female driven market will carry a wide variety of locally-made items for everyone in your life. Check out ten things we’re looking forward to from the Gowanus Girls, starting with a silky slice of Daly’s pumpkin pie to get you into the mood.
Mullein and Sparrow
I may have at least 6 lip balms floating in the bottom of my handbag, but I wouldn’t turn down this tin of organic gloss ($12). The sheer pink tint will keep me looking rosy through the wintery months.
Shopping for my significant other is never easy. With a birthday in the forecast, I’m eyeing this masculine canvas bag ($495) with leather and brass details. An attractive and useful gift? I think it’s in the bag.
A true New Yorker has the subway map memorized or at least tattooed on their arm. This engraved silver cuff ($37) is just as good for subtle confirmations that you’re on the right train.
Brooklyn Bird Designs
With several expecting friends, I’m running out of gift ideas. Me thinks these cotton bandana bibs ($9) should play well with the diapered crowd.
Sending out thank you cards in a timely manner is tough. Get a few of these cards ($5) that offer thanks with a side of humor.
Less is more, right? When we’re bundled up under scarves and coats and sweaters, a tiny coral necklace ($24) will brighten up the look.
I love the colors of this mushroom inspired print ($50). More so, I love how it reminds of me of peering into a microscope.
Have you heard? Bamboo fabric is super soft and comfortable. Plan to live in this hand painted skirt ($58) for the next few months.
After a long day of shopping Gowanus Girls Mart, you’ll need a bag of these apple snacks ($11.99) for energy. Eat up.
