While Bed-Stuy is known for many things—namely its stately brownstones and giving the world The Notorious BIG—the largely residential enclave of Brooklyn is hardly considered a shopping destination. Thankfully, Sincerely, Tommy, a new concept store opened by Kai Avent-deLeon, is out to change that perception. Nestled on the ground floor of an old school brownstone, the minimalist-designed marbled boutique stocks a roster of emerging international designers like Nanushka (Budapest), Natsumi Zama (Japan) and Kara Spetic (Australia). The boutique, which hosts a rotating selection of art and furniture from Brooklyn-based artisans, also boasts a small coffee counter that serves organic brews and Balthazar pastries. Get familiar with Sincerely, Tommy, we're certain that this charming boutique will find it's way into your tipsy post-brunch shopping sessions.
Sincerely, Tommy, 343 Tompkins Avenue, Brooklyn. Open Tuesday-Friday 12pm-8pm, Saturday 11am-8pm and Sunday 11am-6pm.
