Just got back from a short trip to New York for a friend's wedding! Every time I visit my hometown in the Hudson Valley, I try to also visit NYC as it's only an hour and a half drive. Brooklyn is my fave place in the city, so much charm and magic. I just love the vibe and how everything is so walkable - I walked from my Airbnb to each of these shops in just a few hours. Even though I froze my butt off, it was actually v nice to be able to leave the house without having to jump in a car to get to where I needed to go. Keep scrolling for some of the adorbs places I visited while staying in Williamsburg!
Woops! Williamsburg (548 Driggs Ave.)
Such a lovely lil bake shop! White brick walls, white tile floors, and colorful bouqs on every table - what's not to love? I ordered a chai latte and blueberry scone, sat in front of the window and people watched. Such a nice way to start the day!
Concrete + Water (485 Driggs Ave.)
A pretty lifestyle boutique that sells men & women's clothing, accessories, and home goods. Head to the back room for plant bbs, and a gorge outdoor space too!
Rituals (143 Berry St.)
Loved running into this beautiful display while walking down the street! The shop interior is just as lovely - they sell luxurious yet affordable products for home and body.
Leif (99 Grand St.)
Such a cozy little shop filled with treasures! Ceramics, pillows, candles, baskets, jewelry, and more can be found here - I wanted to take every single thing home with me.
Pilgrim Surf + Supply (68 N 3rd St.)
I felt like I was back in California when I stepped inside this colorful shop. Pilgrim sells pieces for a lifestyle of outdoor activities, with a focus on surf. Those rainbow surf boards had me swooning!
SWORDS-SMITH (98 South 4th St.)
If you're looking for unique, one of a kind products that tell a story, Swords-Smith is the place to visit. They offer a thoughtfully curated shopping experience with a focus on discovery and modern design. I found the fuzziest pink alpaca slide slippers here and it took a LOT of self control not to snatch them up!
Weekends (155 S 4th St.)
A cute cafe with a great environment and friendly staff, I ordered the avo toast with an egg on top. Drooling now just thinking about it.
Sprout Home (59 Grand Street)
Walking down the street in the freezing cold with the wind blowing and the sounds of the city, I opened the door to Sprout and was instantly transported to another world. A jungley, warm, peaceful, green oasis! This large plant shop is chock full of beauties, in addition to plant pots, candles, books, florals, terrariums, and more.
Sprout Home Kitchen & Table (44 Grand Street)
By the same owners of Sprout Home and just across the street! This one focuses on beautiful gorge pottery and other fabulous home goods.
And there you have it! So much gorge-ness, right? Pretty much shop heaven. What are some of your fave places in NYC? Let me know in the comments so I can be sure to visit them on my next trip!
