After selling his unisex screen-printed clothing ($28–$60) and accessories ($10–$20) at the Coney Island Museum and Dekalb Market, artist Chris Smith re-opens his shop in Coney Island. The quaint shop’s teal facade beckons you into the space, featuring a blue-tiled floor, neon-light boxes and glass shelves displaying threads. The back of the store acts as an open work space, where Smith and his artist wife, Yukiko Wada, construct their own designs and transfer the mostly Kings County–themed images onto tees ($24), button-ups ($35) and hoodies ($50–$60). Grab a colorful apron ($20) printed with the famous Cyclone roller coaster, or shirts ($24) emblazoned with images of Brooklyn native Larry David or Lord of the Rings phrases, including "Tolkien in the boy’s room."
