Did you know that there's any Etsy pop-up shop on Governor's Island? Well, there is! My mother and I were wandering around on Sunday and discovered this lovely little shop. It was very well curated and I saw lots of things I would have loved to own, including a necklace made from vintage beads, which I ended up buying.
When my sister and I went to visit Governor's Island two years ago I wondered what they would do with all the buildings on the island, and I am glad to see them being used in a way that supports independent craftspeople. I also loved it that the shop felt very down-to-earth and genuine, and the ladies manning the shop that day were super-friendly. Be sure to stop in, if you visit the island.
