Over the next week leading up to Christmas, The Brooklyn Reader is encouraging readers to shop local!
We have assembled a holiday gift guide with some fantastic suggestions for several unique, one-of-a-kind and often handmade gift items that will help you stand out during the holidays while helping our local economy!
Store: Miss Master’s Closet
Location: 1070 Bedford Avenue, Bed-Stuy 718-783-2979
Types of Items: Second-hand wares, rare vintage finds
Description: If Miss Master’s Closet, a vintage shop on Bedford Avenue, in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, was an actual closet, it would surely belong to your very fashionable aunt, probably on your mother’s side, who has dashed through life with impeccable taste, leaving a trail of eyeballs on her oh-so-stylish wardrobe.
From impeccably kept overcoats, beautiful blouses and dresses to show-stopping accessories and a shoe collection to make Imelda Marcos, slap Sarah Jessica Parker with a fur lined, butter leather glove, if this closet had skeletons, they would probably be vintage Dior.
It has menswear as well, so you can do your holiday shopping for the stylish loved ones of either gender.
