In the same spirit of the last post, a brand new fashion Co-Op called “Better than Jam” has just opened on Flushing Avenue in the Loom! I just went to check it out this Saturday and the collection is amazing. Each designer there has their own distinct style that is totally recognizable. All the products are designed by NYC designers and made here! Take a look at some of my favorite things that I saw:

We are excited about “First Sundays” at “Brooklyn Lyceum” which is a monthly book talk with authors. This month is Galway Kinnell who’s poetry you may or may not be familiar with. He’s won many awards, including a Pulitzer and is reading his newest work this evening!
