Brooklyn Collective

Brooklyn Collective
In a big ol' eff-you to the proverbial Man, Brooklyn Collective opened its doors to artists who wanted to showcase their work without the pressures of corporate retail. Members bear the brunt of the rent and keep 100 percent of their profits. Check out the whimsical illustrations by Lisel Ashlock or impossibly delicate gold-leaf earrings by Jess Yam. 198 Columbia St between DeGraw and Sackett Sts, Carroll Gardens (718-596-6231, brooklyncollective.com)

Erie Basin
Sampling Russell Whitmore's shop is like taking a crash course in art history, without all those slides. Not your typical hand-me-down jewelry, these 19th- and early-20th-century antiques have been handpicked and preserved with fastidious care. Keep an eye out for the always-in-stock Victorian cameo rings ($150--$350). 388 Van Brunt St at Dikeman St (718-554-6147, eriebasin.com)

home/made
The owners of this funky-fresh home-goods store have consolidated their wine garden/grill around the corner (formerly known as Tini) into one spot, where most of the stoneware, woven baskets and customized treasures are for sale. Sip some vino while you restock your style. 293 Van Brunt St at Pioneer St (347-223-4135, homemadebklyn.com)

Metal & Thread
Step into this cozy, dimly lit shop to bolster your Brooklyn pride. Denise Carbonell has set up a store where the fiver in your pocket can send you home happy instead of hankering. Peruse handmade items (mostly) from Red Hook residents. With quilts, chain-mail jewelry, wire-sculpted hands and recycled coffee-bag purselets, local never looked so good. 398 Van Brunt St between Coffey and Dikeman Sts (718-414-9651, metalthread.com)

Saipua
This family-owned flower shop creates incredible bouquets, with seasonal blossoms fit for a blushing bride or an ambrosia-sipping princess. Whether you need to make a serious apology or clean up your act with natural olive oil-based soaps, Saipua's got just the thing. 147 Van Dyke St between Conover and Van Brunt Sts (718-624-2929, saipua.com)
