Creators' Co-op

Astoria
Since 2008, owner Kazuki Kozuru-Salifoska has sold both her own designs and those of other artisans exclusively at street fairs and markets. In her her first brick-and-mortar store, she continues to follow that business plan. Her cozy space houses an eclectic mix of handmade jewelry, home accessories, organic skin-care products and apparel by local artists and designers, including Gaetano Canella, Kristen Benson and Meng Weng. Sleek black wooden furniture showcases a hodgepodge of items such as bottles of Anthesis Organic Skincare lavender hand cream ($16), Gina Schiappacasse mounted fashion-inspired art prints ($40), M Voli E hand-knit colorful wool bracelets with heart charms ($65) and Kristen Benson sterling silver pendant necklaces with white sapphires ($152). Sift through garment racks set against the fuchsia-and-orange walls to find Nera silk organza and lace dresses ($185) and Kozuru-Salifoska’s own babySOLAIRE striped corduroy jumpers lined with African prints ($58). Before you head out with your new goods in a handcrafted shopping tote, you may catch a glimpse of the shop owner hard at work on her 50-year-old Singer sewing machine.
