Culture on the Cheap
Open For Business!
Last night as the Mister and I were headed to Brooklyn Label we made a most auspicious discovery: the wine store at 153 Franklin Street is OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Being the oenophiles booze hounds we are, we went inside to take a look.
As you can see, things still look a little rough but that is to be expected. This was their first day in business, after all.
This is Bonita. She watches over the inventory with a very keen eye.
This cart features wines for $12.00 or less. All in all, I am very pleased with what I found. The selection was good, the prices reasonable and the service very friendly.
I adored these candles. They are made by the owner’s mother. If you look carefully on the second shelf to the right you’ll see the Flatiron Building.
“Dandelion Wine” (as it is tentatively called, you will learn why in a minute) is slated to be open seven days a week from noon until 10:00 p.m.* Diners at Brooklyn Label (which is located across the street and is still awaiting their liquor license) will be given a 10% discount for the purchase of wine to accompany their meal.
153 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222
Lastly, here’s the scoop regarding this business’s name: the owner is tired of it and wishes to use something different. Although she has several candidates, she is open to suggestions. If any of you have an idea for the name of this new wine shop shoot your suggestions to: lilyecho (at) gmail (dot) com.
