Introducing our New Shops for 2012!
Joining us for the 2012 season are a gang of exciting new shops that we know you’re going to love. From girly boutiques to treasure troves of worldly goods, our rookie shops are anything but cookie cutter. Meet five new shops we’re extra-excited about below, and keep reading for a complete list of new additions.
Alice Rose (D08): If you loved Jessica DeCarlo’s hip handmade jewelry shop last season, put her new project, Alice Rose, at the top of your must-visit list this season. The Brooklyn-based designer has curated a comely collection of crafty finds, like sweet ceramic mugs and cups by SKT, soy candles and organic soaps by Blythe and Bonny, and handmade and fair trade leather and tapestry totes to give you that ultra-cool DIY look.
Brazilian Home Collection (I01): This shop imports the beauty of Brazil to Bryant Park, curating a colorful collection of authentic home décor items with an environmentally responsible and socially conscious philosophy. Choose from a range of fairly traded, top-quality exotic goods, such as hand-carved wooden sculptures, delicate ceramic flowers and hearty wooden furniture.
Brooklyn Botanicals (K03): Whether you’ve got a sprawling country lawn or a tiny studio apartment in the city with no outside space at all, Brooklyn Botanicals wants to bring a little greenery into your life with their handcrafted garden accents and planters. Made of colored glass and copper wiring, the hanging plant rooter collection makes for a beautiful and dirt-free pop-up garden inside or out. If you’ve got a bit more backyard to your name, shop among a whimsical assortment of fun whirligigs and wind-spinners to jazz up your grass.
Macarons and Cookies by Woops (K08): If you’re jonesing for a little something sweet, look no further than our French patisserie in the park, Macarons and Cookies by Woops. With their lightly crisp crusts and soft, doughy insides, plus a decadent dab of sweet cream in the middle, these colorful confections are perfectly poppable and even yummier by the dozen. Pick up a couple for a snack while you stroll, or order a platter for your party – with so many delicious flavors, we suggest you make it your mission to try them all.
Raaka Chocolate (C05): Virgin chocolate debuts at Bryant Park this season, thanks to the off-beat chocolatiers at Raaka. These purveyors of adventurous flavors like Chili, Blueberry-Lavender and Vanilla-Rooibos make their 100% vegan chocolate with a commitment to sustainability and humanitarianism, so your indulgence is truly guilt-free. From the hand-drawn wrappers printed with organic inks to the never-roasted, extra-bold cocoa beans that comprise each bar, Raaka chocolates are truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
