L at Bedford Ave.
American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa
This boutique stocks one-of-a-kind jewelry, handmade women’s clothing, and casual wear for the Williamsburg set. The store is tiny—about the size of a neighborhood studio. Owner and former seamstress Rony Vardi decorated both with sky-blue walls, vintage mirrors, and Moroccan lamps, and sells some of her own jewelry alongside intricate, gold charm necklaces by designers like Paper Fig and repurposed copper pieces. And though Catbird’s after-hours shopping parties are no more, savvy boyfriends can still stumble in to find the perfect gift for their indie gal. The Bedford Avenue store—which stocks primarily jewelry—even allows shoppers to keep wish lists on file.Wedding Rings
Nontraditional wedding bands and engagement rings by local designers such as Bing Bang and Old Hollywood are staples here. Styles range from wallet-friendly gold bands (from $150) to elaborate snake rings with Indian diamonds ($6,254).
