For ladies in the know, it used to be that you'd have to hunt flea markets, craft fairs, and boutiques for the offbeat jewelry of Erica Bradbury, the designer behind Species by the Thousands. But this spring, fans of her brass and bronze treasures rejoiced when she finally opened her own shop with the equally hip accessories team of Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer (a/k/a Cold Picnic). Their Williamsburg store, fittingly named A Thousand Picnics, is a small, rustic space with reclaimed-wood flooring, '70s-inspired macrame plant holders, and a large cactus centerpiece. Nature and folk magic are the predominant themes here. Native American–inspired beaded necklaces, mystical rocks on chains, and skull crucifixes all feel as though they should be worn like talismans. Perfect for gifts, many pieces are priced well under $100, such as hoop earrings with dark crystals dangling from them ($24) and an array of vintage rings ($10 each). The place also carries an assortment of items for the home, such as hand-loomed rugs, screen-printed pillows, and a delightful "White Magic Room Spray" to bring you good spirits. 171 South 4th Street, Brooklyn, 347-606-8715 (11211)
