We wanna send you a Sunny Eckerle Bodega Cat Enamel Pin!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


When a midwesterner moved to gentrified Brooklyn and took it upon herself to write a scathing review of a bodega cat, the internet came to defend all the bodega cats across the land. Little did Ms. Midwesterner know, she solidified our love of cats even more and thus skyrocketed the mystical bodega cat into cult status. Sunny Eckerle‘s little enamel pins are in celebration of New York’s bodega cats. All come with a story about how the cat came to be the bodega’s mascot. The pin comes on a custom printed card featuring the original bodega artwork. Part of a limited edition collaboration with Valley Cruise Press.


Sunny Eckerle is an illustrator living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She’s done work for Urban Outfitters, Curbed, Penguin Random House, She Shreds, Reverb, Valley Cruise Press, Country Living Magazine, The Cat Kit, A Song A Day, Bedford + Bowery, Classic Specs, Father/Daughter Records, Brooklyn Kolache, Swell Dive, and more.
