In December we parked the truck, locked up its doors and opened up a shop in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
It was something we talked about during the summer as an option to stay open, for a change of scenery and to experience a indoor work space. With our being accustomed to small spaces, we had no problems fitting it just the way we did the truck. We also could not have imagined how many new shop owners we would meet and connect with during our short time there.
The Dumbo Shops are located at 145 Front Street, with our entrance on Pearl Street. It was right across the street from the Manhattan Bridge and down the block was the waterfront park, Cadman Plaza and the iconic Washington Street where so many movies have been filmed.
We met tons of new customers and were so lucky to see so many of our loyal customers came out in the cold and travelled specifically to see our little shop. It made us appreciate all the relationships we had made through the summer. It gave us a burst of energy and excitement for this coming spring & summer season too!
Before we opened its doors we added a handful of new brands and merchandise including a collaboration with Made In Rye. We added beauty products from Tokyo Factory, their handmade organic products are top of the line; not to mention they all smell amazing. The scented soy candles are our personal favorites.
Now we are busy planning events and adding items to our online shop. It was such an amazing experience being in Brooklyn for the winter, we grew to love grabbing coffee from the little coffee shop next store The Archway Cafe which we will miss . We look forward to going back and visiting all our new friends & shop owners there. Please stay tuned for the next journey that End Of The A will take on and as always, see you on the road real soon!
