As Valentine’s Day inches closer, here’s our next local power couple to share their love story with us: Mary Brockman, owner and operator of Kill Devil Hill, and Patrick Dacy, owner and operator of Duke’s Liquor Box, right next door to each other on Franklin Street. Mary has been building custom aprons, repairing denim, handcrafting candles, and offering a variety of locally made objects for the home for 5 years now. Patrick is her partner in life and in business, and is a seller of fine spirits, just recently launching Duke’s in September 2013. Continue reading
Kill Devil Hill
You may have noticed on Franklin St that Kill Devil Hill moved next door and in its place is Duke’s Liquor Box (170 Franklin St), a liquor store named after the son of Kill Devil Hill‘s Mary Brockman and Patrick Dacy. The kid is in my opinion “officially” the cutest kid in Greenpoint.
According to Patrick, the loan that jump started the business was from Duke’s Grandma, and it will be paid back to Duke in the form of a college fund or “travel the world fund.” An adorable letter from Grandma is framed up front and reads, “this is the weirdest college fund I’ve ever heard of.” It’s okay Grandma, this kid is set!

Spring is in the air! Birds are chirping, coats are coming off, and we’re all dreading the necessary (yet evil!) spring cleaning. Instead of going full-throttle into organization mode, how about buying something to give your apartment that much-needed facelift? Our local shops have plenty of home decor options at a variety of price points that are sure to help your abode get out of it’s winter rut. And now that it’s warm enough to paint outside, try investing in a fixer upper/game changer that just needs a little TLC. (Try not to use aerosol paint.)
In December, Kill Devil Hill (170 Franklin St) will be holding a month long pop-up shopping event in a vacant space next door to the shop and is looking for builders, makers, crafters and creators to participate. Please contact killdevilhill (at) gmail.com
