When the rents in Manhattan are too much for you to stomach, what’s an Internet boutique to do? Cross the river to Brooklyn, of course. According to reports in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the space does not come cheap ($34.25/sq. foot); still, the first retail location for Brooklyn Stone Boutique is able to avail itself of the cosmopolitan New York consumer without having to pay the galling Manhattan rents.
According to their Facebook fan page, Brooklyn Stone Boutique “offers affordable luxury items for a stylish women’s lifestyle.” A quick glance over their pictures on the Facebook page shows all manner of luxury women’s clothing, shoes and jewelry. Some looks are more conservative; others more exotic and splashy. All are created with the urban cosmopolitan consumer in mind.
The Brooklyn Stone Boutique website is still under construction; in the meanwhile, curious consumers can go to the Brooklyn Stone Boutique Facebook fan page and have a look around at some of the items for sale and some of the fashions the store will stock. The store’s owner is also regularly on the wall, posting tiny comments to keep friends abreast of what’s going on.
Folks who live in Clinton Hill and want to know what’s going on should visit the Facebook page often. The proprietor has made allusions to posting some pre-opening shopping opportunities; folks who regularly transit the Myrtle Avenue area where Brooklyn Stone Boutique is opening up should keep their ears to the ground!
