You may think all the ‘cool’ shops in Greenpoint inhabit Franklin Street, but that’s definitely not the case and Fanaberie is catering to the fashion conscience folks on the Nassau side of the ‘point.
Fanaberie opened in March 2010 carrying contemporary women’s clothing (lots of dresses), handbags, accessories and sterling silver jewelry – just about everything to put together an outfit! They have many unique pieces and have a good selection from t-shirts to elegant dresses.
As for the prices, almost everything is under $100. Dresses $39-69, handbags $29-59. Owner Ella Sikorski used to work for a jewelry designer and with time has developed a special kind of appreciation for one of a kind items that are unique and yet affordable. “One of the the biggest joys for us is having customers coming back every week to check what’s new or just to tell us that every time they wear a piece from the store they get compliments.”
Fanaberie has a few glowing reviews on Yelp, and is currently having a summer sale. They’re also part of the GBA – Greenpoint Business Association and participating in Last Saturdays (pssst – next one is this weekend!). They just put together Facebook and Twitter pages to post new styles and updates.
And as a super special treat – Fanaberie is offering 10% Off for anyone who mentions Greenpointers!
