  • Great article about everyday life of making!

  • So glad you highlighted this fantastic, creative couple. Aside from wishing I was friends with them, taking a peek into their lives and business makes me want to support Brooklyn Haberdashery even more! Time to shop!!

  • Lovely !

  • What a colourful, functional, green & growing world in which to live and create.

  • Your post reminded me of Neruda’s “Odes to Common Things,” one of my favorite books. Off to pull it out and read a few of the poems…

  • One of those stories that makes you wish the rest of the world would be that way. They’ve certainly lit their one little candle. Chloe

  • What an amazing family. I’d like to be them when I grow up, except I’m all growled up at 72, but its never too late. Thank you Krisitin and Anthony for being who you are.

  • I understand that Brooklyn has become very gentrified.

    • It’s a very big borough!

  • I love this segment. Please bring us more like it.

    • ICYMI, Jeanette Sloan’s Portrait in Objects is right here: moderndailyknitting.com/jeanettes-things-a-life-in-objects/

  • Oh my gosh! Love the collection of brooms.

    • I saw those and thought of my great-aunt who had a broom shop in the Amana Colonies in Iowa for years. So cool. Also loved the view of their backyard, which was so British in its smallness and ambition. And making your own timber-frame house of your own milled wood is no joke! You can see their love of craft in everything they do.

  • Thank you for this!! So inspiring!! I look forward to supporting them.

  • What a great way to be inspired! Calm and soothing, a reminder to make use of what we already have and recycle/reuse beloved objects. Perhaps it’s time reissue parts or the whole of an old MDK book I found at my used book store. What’s the title? It’s called, “The Curious Knitters Guide”. I’m such a bookaholic. Happy Holidays everyone. We must knit on. Soon the pandemic and 2020 will be over.

  • Hi Kristin and Anthony. Thanks for sharing this article about your awesome sounding business. It’s nice to hear about your lives and your inspiring example of low impact living.

  • This is the first time I’ve heard of Brooklyn Haberdashery, but I think it’s going to be in my life from now on. Wonderful fabrics and ideas, and such a happy air about it all.

  • Beautiful and creative artisans and artistry. Beautifully done and well written featured piece. Beautiful people and souls.

  • I very much enjoyed learning about this company and this couple. Keep this series going please..I like to hear about people who share like-minded visions of craft and the world beyond…

  • I have a button box that has more than buttons in it that I treasure because there are pieces of people and their lives that I will never know but I cherish
