Pinpoint has a little piece of my heart: this tough-but-chic brand run by two clever Greenpoint ladies in the jam. So, step up your accessories game and style up that banging denim vest you thrifted from Dusty Rose or the dreamy leather jacket you spied in Fox and Fawn. Besides looking cool, these lil pins are totally wallet friendly. All of these pretty metals and patches are only 10 bucks or less!

VERAMEAT (132 N 5th St.) is my go-to shop for pieces that are a little sassy and pack a mean punch. The North 5th Street boutique merges humor and playfulness with an eye for design. So if you have some denim jackets and moto vests that need some fresh pins, or a few cheeky rings and necklaces for your jewelry game, then you need to check out the latest from this Williamsburg jewelry studio.
The sky was shining and the sun glowed on Sunday, April 9th and we were psyched to meet over 2,000 people! You shopped, you danced, you ate sweet treats, you sipped mezcal Palomas, you relaxed with rooftop yoga, you posed for sweet photos, and met local makers.
If for some reason you missed out on the dozens of indie designers we hosted last weekend at our Greenpointers Spring Market (it was glorious!), then this weekend you’d do well to check out the popup night market at Brooklyn Bazaar. Shop from and mingle with some really cool independent local designers while rocking out to some sweet jams and sipping your favorite tipsy bevs. We promise it’ll be more fun than the weekend plans you haven’t made yet.
My darling Greenpointers, I’m so psyched to introduce you all to one of our featured artisans at this Sunday’s market. Elisa Jimenez is an artist and designer with influences on mythology, mysticism, and other magical elements. Her dreamy-meets-sultry-but-powerful creations have been seen on the likes of Courtney Love, Cindy Sherman, Jennifer Connelly, and Melissa Auf Der Maur.
Elisa designed that tank for Courtney Love. Teenage me was majorly obsessed in the 90s.
And, now you can score your own ah-mazing spontaneous couture dress. Read more for some vibrant details on Elisa’s creations, her influences, and her magnificent energy.
