Over the next few days 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: Sincerely Tommy
Location: 343 Tompkins Avenue, Bed-Stuy
Types of Items: Unique, original, hand-made crafts, body care products, clothes and accessories
Description: Sincerely Tommy is the type of Bed-Stuy Shop that does the neighborhood proud.
It's a minimalist lover's fantasy; all clean lines and meticulous design points. It's nothing wasted or unnecessary in the store's effort to communicate its love for design, the neighborhood and local fashion designers, many of whom are exclusive to the shop.
What is necessary is a visit to Sincerely Tommy to check out their lifestyle collection of amazing jackets, blouses, accessories and bags...especially the bags, which will please the most Soho-centric fashionista on your gift list.
It's also candles, hand-crafted tableware and unique furniture pieces that might not even be for sale, but worth inquiring about. Hyper-local, hyper-funky, Sincerely Tommy.
