10 Second Shop Tour: Jill Lindsey

Jill Lindsey likes to joke that her eponymously-named shop on Brooklyn’s Myrtle Avenue is something of a “mini department store.” Filled with beautiful craft objects, gifts, furnishings, and self-designed clothing, it certainly isn’t far off. Especially when considering the charming wine and espresso bar nestled into the back (with tables and stools of Jill’s own design!), the tiny floral business that fits cozily inside, and the back patio perfect for enjoying affogatos on a summer night. Come in on a random day of the week and you might find yourself treated live music, oyster tastings, delicious wine, or even some lighthearted speed dating! In different hands, a business with so many elements might become chaotic or unfocused, but Jill, a former stylist, has created a dazzling, cohesive wonder. Even in the middle of a neighborhood that has undergone drastic changes in the past decade, Jill has been able to knit together the locale’s past and present, paying homage to her space’s history by maintaining the old locksmith’s signage on the facade and uncovering an old fresco—a relic from the space’s days as an Italian restaurant. Although the shop may defy definition, it doesn’t quite need it. It’s a wonderland: a multi-functional space that is brimming with color, community, and delightfully infectious energy. Check out the highlights from our visit above or continue after the jump for all the photos! —Max

I want to live there, too! It’s so charming and Jill sells absolutely beautiful, whimisical things. Too bad her shop is thousands of miles away…

I love the bar, and the backyard is a real gem. Go and enjoy a delicious Six Point beer, you won’t regret it.
