10-Second Shop Tour: Dry Goods

by Maxwell Tielman

My little area of Brooklyn (the somewhat ambiguous area that includes Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Downtown) has undergone some pretty drastic changes since I moved in, some welcome and some not so much. Welcome: the fantabulous Brooklyn Fare grocery store (no more schlepping to Trader Joe’s!). Not so welcome: my laundromat closing down to make way for even more luxury condos (but what about my dirty clothes?). Amongst all of the good and bad changes that have taken place in my ‘hood in recent years, the arrival of Carla Brookoff’s Atlantic Avenue shop, Dry Goods, is at the top of my “good” list. A Brooklyn native, Carla’s allegiance lies firmly with the surrounding neighborhood and her store’s presence is a welcome addition to the colorful shops that line this busy shopping district. Occupying a space that is a little larger than some walk-in closets, Dry Goods packs a lot of old-fashioned charm into a pretty tiny package—kitchenware, dog accessories, and all manner of household treasures are just some of the delights that line the shop’s antique shelves. The lovely wares and brilliant decor aside, though, it is Carla’s obvious passion for her products (and the makers behind them) that makes Dry Goods such a gem. Ask Carla about practically anything in her shop and you will likely be treated to a fabulous story of how, where, and from whom she found such a fabulous object. It’s the details that count and at Dry Goods, there are plenty! Check out the highlights from our visit above, or see all of the photos after the jump! —Max
