We visited our favorite children’s store this weekend, Flying Squirrel, and discovered that the store will be relocating to a larger space in Greenpoint. Flying Squirrel is not only a store but a local community hub. It sells new and used clothing and toys, the lovely owner Kate Schmitz purchases your gently used materials and gives credit toward other items. She is also a wealth of information about the neighborhood and is willing to give it to anyone who asks. While we were there, she recommended another local baby boutique for something that she didn’t sell. Flying Squirrel hosts community events like the Williamsburg Witches Walk and continues to be a venue where other locals can post their information on her bulletin board. We are so excited that this growing business will have a larger space for everyone to enjoy!
Flying Squirrel will relocate in late August 2013
New Address: 83 Oak Street, Greenpoint Brooklyn (right off Franklin)
