      Oh no– time to get a new hoodie! Was it a custom design? Although I don’t live in DUMBO I was tempted to pick up the cute tee from Neighborhoodies. What a fun area of NYC 🙂

      Meeting these shop owners was a highlight of my recent visit to Brooklyn. It’s great when you can actually talk to the artists behind the merchandise!

    Nice roundup and guide for small business shopping in Brooklyn. What an enjoyable weekend it was! I could go for some spiced hot chocolate as a pick me up right now!

      I did not get to try the Jacques Torres hot chocolate but I heard it was amazing!

      Thanks! Love that the bike shop uses recycled parts and proceeds go towards children’s community programs. What a great cause!
