Everything is made locally at By Brooklyn, the small boutique that just opened two weeks ago at 261 Smith Street. From the wooden cutting boards to the batik t-shirts, from the lavender and lemon soap to the gourmet mustard, everything is produced in our fair borough.
The idea for By Brooklyn came to owner Gaia DiLoreto when she realized that locally-grown and hand-made products available at local farmers market and venues like the Brooklyn Flea, were not easily found in her Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill neighborhood. She decided to give Brooklyn craftsmen a more permanent space to sell their wares. Besides, the Santa Fe, New Mexico native was planning a career change to " unwind and reset." What better way to do that than to create a community for artists and to offer their Brooklyn-inspired wares to the neighborhood?
