Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Fan of Fanaberie
I have a confession to make: I do not like to shop. Among other things I rarely have money to outlay on such niceties as handbags, jewelry, etc., and what’s more, after dealing with shoppers several days a week I care not to join their ranks. However, I have been hearing a lot of buzz about this establishment and feel compelled to pass some of it along here. Monika writes:
Dear Miss Heather,
I haven’t seen any mention in your blog of Fanaberie (102-A Nassau Avenue between Leonard and Eckford). It’s a new clothing/accessories store run by a LOVELY Polish woman. I know you are interested in supporting local businesses and I thought you might want to check it out. I just bought a fabulous bracelet for 20 bucks (!!) and a few weeks ago, found the “wallet of my dreams” (modern style, big but not too big, and non-leather!) for $25. I think this place will appeal to both the Polish and non-Polish community (if only they give it a look). Anyhow, I was so inspired after my visit there today that I wrote a review for Yelp…FYI — http://www.yelp.com/biz/fanaberie-brooklyn
This is a ringing endorsement if I have ever read one. Methinks I will have to bite the bullet and check this place out!
