The One Well
Minimize your carbon footprint with organic, upcycled, vintage and salvaged products at this eco-conscious Brooklyn boutique. Owner and curator Kerry Jones has centered her home and housewares shop around a philosophy that promotes sustainability and locally produced wares, as well as positive mood-boosting energy for her customers. Mother Nature–approved items include vintage silk sari throws ($195–$295), reclaimed fabric throw pillows ($55–$95) and handwoven Thai baskets ($30–$175). The jewelry on the premises is thoughtfully chosen for its healing properties, such as Conscious Jewelry by Danna Weiss five-stone chakra necklaces ($375), sterling-silver-plated lapis lazuli necklaces ($190), and hematite and obsidian lariats ($75). The One Well also hopes to boost Greenpoint’s fine-arts scene by hosting receptions the second Friday of every month, featuring works ranging from videos to performance art. Mention TONY for 15 percent off purchases of $50 or more through Dec 31. 165 Greenpoint Ave between Eckford and Leonard Sts, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (347-889-6792, theonewell.com). Tue–Thu noon–7pm; Fri, Sat noon–8pm; Sun noon–6pm.
You can find my quilted vintage saris, silk screen hand and kitchen towels, patchwork quilts and more at The One Well.
