FREE Homemade Brooklyn Pop-Up Shop

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I’m sure this pop-up shop trend pisses off landlords, but until this whole economy thing sorts itself out, I fully welcome new and inventive ways to use empty storefronts. I wrote last month about Kill Devil Hill in Greenpoint turning into a bakery boutique and now they’re showing you a little love in return with a three day event promoting and teaching the DIY ethic.

The folks over at Brooklyn Skillshare will be leading free knitting classes on Sunday. If you feel the same way about needles as I do, leave it to the experts and peruse tons of local handmade goods from BAM’s beef jerky, Old Hollywood (a personal favorite of mine), and many more. Be sure to get there early to get your share of free food and drinks, there will also be lectures and giveaways for other handmade enthusiasts.

Laura S - Spendthrift Scribe

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
