If you don’t live on Franklin Street, you may not have noticed the great series of pop-up stores that have begun to occupy Duke’s Annex, the small space next to Duke’s Liquor Box. Throne Watches is the current pop-up store, and we were curious about their beautiful leatherwork, so we asked Travis Alexander, one of Throne’s founders, about their watches and what you can expect to find at their pop-up store.

If there were ever a place to trust a twitchy man with a straight razor, it would be at the workstation of Tomcats Barbershop savant David Arce.

Hey babes, there’s a killer sale tomorrow at Mind/Matter this Saturday. Stick to your holiday budget this year with some lovely wares for your nearest & dearest and pick up a little vintage somethin’ for your fine self.
In God We Trust continues its tradition in badassery. The shop recently unveiled its Fall/Winter 2015 collection, with a mind for layering these pieces or wearing them stand alone. Either way, you’re sure to look like a gorgeous babe.
Inkkas is changing the way we think about footwear and it’s all happening in Greenpoint. The shop is a cozy splash of bright color on 77 Franklin Street and it’s quickly becoming a driving force in the fight against deforestation and environmental degradation.
What I always find amazing about Greenpoint is it’s solid collaborations and spontaneous attitude for innovation. De Islas is taking cool prints and making them dazzle. Artists, friends, and collaborators, Junko and Elena are the creative forces behind this enigmatic brand. I got to chat with them about the journey of discovery and why Greenpoint dazzles us all.
This amazing tarot class is back! If you’re wondering about the esoteric arts, now is the time to learn. At tonight’s class, Lindsay Mack will teach you about the insightful tarot readings, it’s mystic and compass qualities, and more mystic qualities. Be the tarot queen you’re mean to be.
Tickets are $45 and include some adult beverages. I’d love to know what the cards have in store for you.
Oh, fall fashion, how I love thee. Well, if you want some lovely new duds for autumn styles but want to keep on budget, Mirth Vintage is having a friends and family sale.

Event details: Mirth Vintage | 606 Manhattan Ave. Nov 5th | 7-9 pm.
One of the reasons I moved to this neighborhood is that so many women have the most intriguing sense of style. Wray is a cool and subtle line that has spark and mystery for any Greenpoint woman. I sat down with the designer, Wray Serna, to discuss her amazing collection and why she loves creating and living in Greenpoint.
This Greenpoint stand-by recently shut down. After a fire and some flooding in recent months, the 981 Manhattan Avenue location closed instead of proceeding with needed repairs.
