Curated by Nicole Davis, founder and editor of Brooklyn Based, the Brooklyn Sampler is poised to go on sale for just $20 this Saturday (12/1) at 10 am PST, or 1 our time, online at homeofthesampler.com. Nicole gives a sneak peek and offers an email reminder on her site. As Nicole describes:
It’s an incredible value for one-of-a-kind work made by your gifted neighbors ... artists, designers and crafters who hail from Bed-Stuy, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Ditmas Park, East New York, Fort Greene, Greenpoint, Kensington, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Sunset Park, Williamsburg, and Windsor Terrace, and whose work is available at fabulous boutiques like Spring in Dumbo, Rare Device in Park Slope, the Brooklyn Indie Market, or online at that one-stop-shop for handmade goods, Etsy.
This box is so Brooklyn, it’s even wrapped in Brooklyn maps and lined with The Brooklyn Paper (there’s also a map of the future Brooklyn Greenway and a Zagat’s guide to BK restos inside).
Reiter8 has contributed 100 card holders/mini wallets made from sails and lined in denim. I'm excited to be a contributer in such great company!
