Best Brooklyn Boutique - 2008
Berries. They?re scrumptious, sweet, and tangy?and that?s exactly how you could describe the Redberi boutique off Flatbush. Sure, there are a lot of clothing stores that boast mouth-watering designs, but this one seems to bring out the extra juice. If you don?t want to be a carbon copy of the next gal on the street, store owner Suewayne Brown?who recently opened another store just a few doors down as an extension of this one?can effortlessly provide you with original decadent duds. She carries an exclusive line, a mix of local Brooklyn designers and obscure international designers from Thailand, Japan, and the Ukraine. The designs are handmade vintage pieces or reworked vintage with a modern twist. The store also sells lingerie, candles, soaps, and accessories like handbags, sunglasses, jewelry, and shoes. Pants and skirts range from $50 to $120, while the dresses are, on average, $200. For you rich folk, Redberi has a sister store (aptly named Blueberi) in DUMBO that caters to a higher-net-worth clientele with designs from Italy, Denmark, and Paris.
