'Potager' Pop-Up Shop On Court Street Offers Beautiful, Practical Tools For Kitchen And Garden

Jessica Peck of has launched her first ever pop-up shop on Court Street in Cobble Hill.  For the next few week-ends, Peck's thoughtfully selected  housewares, hand-forged garden tools,  as well as seeds and peat-free soil will be available at 262 Court Street.
Many of the items are hand made by New York City artisans.

"Potager began as an idea to create a space for a community to form around sustainable gardening
community and delicious cooking, " Jessica Peck explains. The pop up shop is a big step in realizing her vision for Potager. "Ultimately, the goal is to have a place for retail as well as classes and workshops: a place where people can get inspired about the whole process of food."

The Potager pop-up shop has been graciously hosted by Pietro Costa and Denver Butson of Vespa Properties.  They write:

"VESPA Properties Group (aka VESPA Projects) is proud to continue to give back to the community by offering their lovely storefront/office/gallery space, pro-bono, to Jess from Potager for her pop-up store. Having curated and hosted eight art exhibitions, a few performances and poetry readings, and a number of political and not-for-profit fundraisers, VESPA (and its owners, visual artist Pietro Costa and poet Denver Butson) are happy that their space can help this young entrepreneur launch her business -- with carefully chosen, durable and aesthetically elegant kitchen and garden products."

The photos are certainly inspiring for spring cleaning. After this winter, it will feel good to treow open the windows and take to a a few new scrubbing brushes.

Well-crafted tools but a little pricey.
