This Brooklyn boutique is owned by a husband and wife team of two, which features beautiful art, jewelry, and clothing from borough residents like the fan-favorite Cold Picnic. They also offer unique one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from artist collaborations. Here, you might find small internal brands like Objects Without Meaning, Swedish Hasbeens, and Libertine-Libertine.

One of Brooklyn’s most unique vintage stores, the Dusty Rose Vintage Warehouse lets customers scrummage through shoulder-deep bins of vintage attire. Just east of McGuinness Boulevard lies some quality and inexpensive finds if you’re willing to do the dirty work and search. This warehouse stands apart from other retailers because of the events and pop-up booths that run both in and out of the store. Their Instagram and Facebook

If you’re looking for a successful and reliable indie boutique, In God We Trust is your best bet. Owner Shana Tabor is behind this boutique’s functions and services, which have been selling locally-made jewelry, clothing, and accessories for more than a decade. In God We Trust has three locations: Williamsburg and the other in Soho. This Greenpoint location is the flagship, where all jewelry and most clothes are made.

Alter also has a second location in Williamsburg, but this storefront has seen incredible success residing on the busy Franklin Street for over ten years, much longer than most other shops and boutiques in the area. Alter caters to all genders and is a relatively alternative, mid-range boutique that carries brands like Cheap Monday, Native Youth, and Baggu.

Most of Greenpoint’s vintage, consignment, and boutique storefronts often have a minimalist Scandanavian aesthetic or something close to that of your kooky aunt’s. People of 2morrow is rather unique in terms of leaning towards a distinctly Californian vibe. With Andean incenses and the airy caftans, this place is much more relaxed, hippie-like, and natural like most Californian boutiques.
