bulletin 

145 Wythe Avenue

Brooklyn, NY 11249

@bulletin.co

THE concept

Bulletin is made for women. Their aim was to build a store that felt tailor-made for girls, a place where you can fall in love with everything but actually afford to buy the pieces. A place where the staff were similar ages to the customer and cared about the same stuff. A place that uses their store to support and celebrate female voices.

THE shop 

All the store is fully stocked by their favourite female-run brands and a generous percentage of purchases made goes directly to Planned Parenthood of New York City. It is a store built by women, for women. The store is the definition of a concept store and includes jewellery, home decor, accessories and clothing; all while being beautifully curated and chosen.

egg shop

THE story

Husband/wife team Sarah and Demetri opened their first Egg Shop in 2014 alongside chef Nick in the Soho district of NYC. Inspired by the versatility of the egg, the team went on to develop a huge, ever-changing menu revolving around it. Now, they have another restaurant with stunning decor along with a cookbook guiding readers different egg-cooking techniques as well as over 100 inventive egg dishes. 

THE FOOD 

The menu is seasonal and the products locally sourced, organic and oh-so tasty. I went for a burger and it was honestly one of the best, more delicious burger I've ever tasted. They also have amazing hot sauce, which they sell by the bottle too.

It has a lovely familiar charm to it and community feeling which is a calm oasis from daily life in the city.

Mother of junk 

567 Driggs Avenue

THE ATMOSPHERE

If you have time to look and love getting lost in the midst of junk you could easily spend hours in here and I would highly recommend doing so. With over 5,000 square feet of treasures to uncover there are so many interesting antiques, vintage clothing, accessories, postcards, old photos, you name it, they've got it.

sweet chick

Brooklyn, NY 11211 

@sweetchicklife

THE FOOD 

Come to this place for American comfort food. I'm talking fried chicken and waffles, maple gazed bacon, steak and eggs, mac and cheese, you get the idea. Rustic but modern takes on American comfort food with twists on classic dishes. Plus they have classic American home-baked desserts like pies and donut ice cream sandwiches (yes, you did read that right.)
