High rents in Manhattan have pushed independent designers and makers to seek out more affordable spaces in Brooklyn. Whether it’s groupings of small shops—you’ll find many in the streets of Williamsburg—or a stall among other vendors at the Brooklyn Flea, it’s easy to do a lot of shopping in a short amount of time in Brooklyn. Head to Catbird in Williamsburg for one-of-a-kind jewelry and gifts, or the Brooklyn Flea to peruse the handmade wares that the city’s young creatives specialize in. The best part: you’ll be supporting young, local designers who are making a living doing what they love.
