With a socially conscious approach to the jewelry they buy and sell, Catbird is your destination for all things shiny and pretty. What started out as a self-described “busted storefront” in 2004 by Rony Vardi, has become one of the most exciting jewelry stores to emerge in the past 15 years. Vardi, who works with a combination of established and emerging jewelers from around the world, has also worked to develop her own line of wares. This gives shoppers a wide range of beautiful things to choose from. Whether you're after something edgy and hip like a knuckle ring that says “Tom Boy” or something more refined and elegant such as an engagement ring, Vardi and her team of jewelry makers have you covered.

An Independent Bookstore Worth Visiting

McNally Jackson

Located in the heart of Williamsburg, McNally Jackson is everything that an independent bookstore should be. From the obscure book titles and unique location, this is a local book mecca. The original store, which is located in SoHo opened a Brooklyn adjacent store in winter 2017. The Williamsburg outpost has its own vibe, which is due in part to the former steel factory it is housed in. This latest venture is a collaboration between bookstore owner and boss babe Sarah McNally and Sam MacLaughlin, but still maintains some elements from the flagship store. There are even plans underway to open another location at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan. When you are here be sure to ask the knowledgeable staff about their latest book recommendations.

With locations in both the Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods, Awoke features a unique set of items that are both a mix of old and new, from that sequenced dress you've always been after, to a conversation-starter pair of sunglasses, or that antique hand-beaded clutch you've always been after.

Opened in 2014 in the Crown Heights neighborhood, this bakery and bar combo has been helping locals mix it up. With the various cafes, restaurants and other local eateries that dot the quickly gentrifying Franklin Avenue, Butter and Scotch is a unique girl-centric oasis in an otherwise hectic part of town. Allison Kave and Keavy Blueher have been serving up craft cocktails and tongue-in-cheek feminist baked goods for the last five years and have developed a cult-like following. From cakes that read “I can do anything you can do bleeding," “The Future is Female" and “She Slays All Day," to cocktails that donate a $1 to Planned Parenthood, this really is the “bakery of your dreams.”
