Brooklyn General Store resides tucked away on a sweet block West of the Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill neighborhoods. At the north end of Red Hook, this commercial block on Union Street used to be a thriving shopping block for all types of foods and goods. Brooklyn General’s home within the Old Frank’s Department Store is a throw back to that era, with its preserved floor to ceiling shelves, rolling ladders and classic old wooden floors. The vintage interior is not reproduced, just uncovered, cleaned and painted.
Winky&Dutch is very proud to have our NY designed and handmade buttons as part of Brooklyn General Store! Why? Because:
Brooklyn General Store was created in an effort to provide the highest quality materials to a community of devoted artists and craftspeople and to promote making things by hand through inspiration and education. Not only is it a place to feast your eyes and hands on glorious colors and patterns and textures but it is a place that respects and honors a time when a trip to the country store was a way of life.
Also when we saw this video by and about Brooklyn General we were hooked.
