A Bird in the Hand..or Brooklyn!
Hello and welcome to June.... For New Yorkers it can't come as too much of a surprise to say how much Brooklyn has changed, amazing restaurants & stores are cropping up all over the borough and one of the best for shopping (and eating) must surely be Williamsburg. We are very fortunate to have a selection of pieces in the fabulous Bird on Grand St. This store is quite something, it spans a whole block, pop in on Grand St & pop out the back on N1st! The store is a real drawcard for customers looking for very beautifully made designer clothes, just looking around makes us drool a little; A.P.C, See by Chloe, Nicole Farhi, Virginia Johnson & yes Wendy Mink Jewelry, below is a selection of pieces currently in the store, a smattering of hammered gold & semi-precious baubles complementing the jewelers alongside very nicely! If you do drop by Bird when in the 'Burg make sure to have a wander down Grand towards the river perusing the many vintage furniture spots, then you could always have a fabulous brunch at Aurora (duck confit hash with poached eggs anyone?) and look across the water at Manhatten knowing Brooklyn just might be all it's cracked up to be...
Well the weekend just past was a busy one for Wendy, plenty of time was spent hanging a great new show in the Lower East Side store, below is a glimpse of Julie Shapiro's colorful work which seems to make the jewelry even more alluring and bright. Please do let us know if you are an artist or know one who you think may be suited to a show in our store, we love to celebrate a new hanging with a little wine and friends, especially when we can have the door open and a warm evening breeze floating in, stay in touch with us for event dates and don't hesitate to call Kelly or Brookes at the store regarding Julie's work or future shows.
When the hanging was complete Wendy was also rather busy filling the vintage cases which seem to be needing replenishing every few days, there are certainly some amazing pieces available, all one-off and ranging in era and price, a little something for everyone. Wendy's current favorite is a fabulous copper jewelry designer, make sure to pop in to the store to view some of the range Wendy collected, plus there's some very fun butterflies, bakelite fruit, flower pins, great pieces for Spring-Summer.
So we will leave you this week with a super great deal, these canvas bags below are more than half off now in the store, they are so great, large & light so even when full they don't feel it. Very tough canvas and a few different shapes and sizes available, these can even take a laundry load!
Visit the store to score one of the last of these great bags at a hugely discounted price, see you there!
Have a great weekend coming up and stay in touch for upcoming June sales and events.
The Wendy Mink team.
