i‘ve been meaning to post about the mast brothers and their chocolate for a while now (months and months and months….really). i had the opportunity to talk to the brothers a while back for work, and have been a fan ever since (they gave me tasty chocolate bars). to give you an idea about their business, when i visited their ‘factory/store’ i found them sitting at the front table wrapping the chocolate in their beautiful papers. that same personal attention to detail is carried throughout the whole process….they make each batch from the best cacao right in their factory in williamsburg, brooklyn. the space itself is amazing, used as a chocolate factory during the week, the front part is open as a store on the weekends where you can come and taste the various concoctions they have created. my favorite is the dark chocolate with almonds and sea salt… but try for yourself, it is sold all over new york, and available in batches online.

so my last post got me thinking about one of my other favorite brooklyn stores, moon river chattel. i‘ve never left disappointed. they are always bringing in new furniture that they have refurbished or found, and carry a wide range of other equally beautiful things. the downside: their website is awful, but you can see some of their products on their flickr… but really, you should just get a coffee at oslo down the street and visit the actual store.

brook farm general store is really worth checking out. they have a beautiful selection of home products, simple yet classic, old and modern. everything from whiskey rocks to hammam towels.
and luckily for those of us not in brooklyn, they have an online store too!

now where have i seen this boy before?
he looks so familiar.
oh yes, now i recall.
i‘ve taken a picture of him before….
it’s amazing how a familiar graffiti tag can make you feel at home.
can you tell which one belongs where?
