Good Questions: Brooklyn Design Shop Tour?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I’m going to be in Brooklyn for a couple of days next week just knocking around — based in cobble hill. I am forever seeing what look to be very interesting home design stores in Brooklyn in design mags but have neglected to note them…so can NYers recommend a handful of must visit stores?…

I especially like salvaged stuff, American antiques (most anything but Victorian… too fussy), groovy stationers, and garden shops.
subway stops would be excellent too, and if anyone wants to design a start to finish design store walking tour itinerary… I would not complain.

Dear Pam,

This is a great question and we’ll take all the answers and put them together into a nice tour for you.

To start you off, we’d recommend Atlantic Avenue from top to bottom, including

Also on the Slope you want to stop at Matter.

Here is a good link to all of our posts that touch on Brooklyn Design.
Anyone else?
