This past Thursday the folks at Brooklyn Industries unveiled their newest retail location in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. Situated in the space of a former ladies clothing store, Brooklyn Industries Greenpoint is particularly special as it is 98% recycled. Using windpower and repurposed fixtures and materials, the store is as unique as its neighborhood, feeling like it has been there all along.
My favorite store elements were the semi-exposed ceiling above and the striped floors below.
The vibe was lovely as all Brooklyn Industries events are, featuring beverages by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Crabbies Ginger Beer, and Bai 5 Antioxidant Infusions. Sweet treats were provided by Bee’s Knees Baking Company.
In my time there, I was introduced to the co-founders of the company (Lexy Funk and Vahap Avsar) by the lovely Erin. I was able to chat with them about how much I love their company, and how much I appreciated that they kept the integrity of Greenpoint in its newest store. I was also able to meet some of the designers behind the lovely pieces that you see in-store and online.
Overall it was a lovely night with friends new and old in my favorite place, Brooklyn. Check out the gallery below for more photos!
