This weekend: design sales in Greenpoint

picture-284Seems like every shop in Brooklyn is having a sale right now, and today our friends over at the Greenpointers blog highlight a few ways to support the local economy. We’re considering breaking our design diet at Gallery 1889‘s sale of “samples, prototypes, products and strangely compelling odds and ends” made by Brooklyn artists including Diane Ruengsorn. (This is her zen tableware.) The sale runs from Friday to Sunday. See Greenpointers for more on this and other local stimulus opportunities.
