Alert: People Who Moved to Brooklyn to Get Away From People Who Shop at Barneys...
Well, whaddya know, Barneys is coming to you! The Co-op, to be exact, which is slightly more palatable than the pretentious behemoth of an original store in these recessionary times, and offers comparable "bargains" (like, $300 for a dress, instead of $1,295).
Just think: Come September, you'll be able to stock up on Trader Joe's Fruit Frenzy bars, pick up an Urban Outfitters papasan chair, and charge a new pair of Moschino "Cheap & Chic" booties, all without leaving the same block on Atlantic Ave. and Court St.
Ain't modern life grand?
