Homemade Brooklyn Is Back!

For those of you who missed the first run of Homemade Brooklyn (I myself am hanging my head in shame), Jessica from The Shiny Squirrel and Sew Moni are giving us a second chance to partake, with another run of their pop-up shop showcasing locally made products. If you've read Jessica's blog, you know that she has amazing taste, as well as a knack for hunting down unique and hard-to-find items, and I expect that her store will naturally reflect this. Located in the Williamsburg at 522 Metropolitan between Union and Lorimer, the shop will feature wares from jewelry designers Species By The Thousands, and perfume from Brooklyn Brainery Perfume Workshop, in addition to nightly workshops, lectures, classes, art exhibitions and performances. As always, all the events are free, and this time the store will be open for a full week, so you have plenty of time to make it over there. I've posted the calendar of events below--I'm going to try to make the opening party, even though it coincides with the night that we're having Hot Chip DJ Webster Hall (which you should also come to), but if you don't see me there, I'll definitely be popping in for one of the workshops!
