Mollie Dash sold her handmade jewelry online and at the Brooklyn Flea before opening her own store in 2010. The space, which hosts a mix of Red Hook locals and weekend day-trippers drawn to the rare, vintage, and eclectic curios on offer inside, has an inviting, relaxed atmosphere, and is a nice alternative to the hurried flea-market vibe. Old books and used records are scattered on surfaces and shelves throughout the store, a Super-8 video camera and reel-to-reel tape player sit next to a rack of vintage T-shirts and dresses, and Dash's unique jewelry resides under glass up front, flanked by greeting cards and custom-made children's dolls. The store's layout changes every few weeks as merchandise is rearranged to make room for recent finds, and a gallery space in back plays host to a different artist each month.
