10 Second Shop Tour: Home of The Brave

by Maxwell Tielman

At 67 West Street, one block from the water in the quiet Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, there’s a giant, large-windowed building. What was once probably a factory of some sort now houses offices, creative workspaces, artists’ studios and—as of last week—Max and Bethany Vogel’s new pop-up shop: Home of The Brave. Although the fourth floor of an old factory isn’t exactly where you’d expect to find a shop (indeed, one experiences a moment of uncertainty when entering the building), the wares for sale seem right at home in the tall-ceilinged, post-industrial space. Max and Bethany’s other venture, Wolves Within, sells fashions for men and women. Home of The Brave shares a similar ethos, but with home goods instead of clothing. Dispersed throughout the one-room space, one can find beautiful, hand-carved spoons by Amelie Mancini, camping stools from Wood & Faulk, handmade tumblers by Trollhagen & Co—the list goes on! At its core, Home of The Brave is a celebration of handicraft and the maker, a wonderful collection of aesthetics, materials and styles. You can drop by the Home of The Brave shop at 67 West St, Suite 406 or shop online here. Check out more photos after the jump! —Max
