Graham Avenue is filled with local, independent businesses. Check out this short guide on some of our favorites and kick-off the holiday shopping season by supporting small businesses.
We See Stars
We See Stars features a variety of gifts with a specialty in jewelry. There are plenty of cute holiday gifts, ornaments, candles, glassware, and paper products.
The shop even includes twee toys for little ones, onesies, and stuffed creatures. We’re particularly fond of the stuffed, knitted MetroCard rattle, particularly since the the MTA will soon be phasing it out in favor of OMNY.
In addition to the Graham Ave store there is a location in Greenpoint at 80 Nassau Ave.

For something a little different, consider getting a plant. Rosehip Social has accessories, plants, and cut flowers. The potted plants are a wonderful gift, and many of the plants are low maintenance. We have several we haven’t killed yet despite years of neglect. And there’s nothing better than the holiday dinner guest who brings some fresh flowers.
And of course if you have a special event like a wedding, Rosehip Social has plenty of experience with local venues.
