    According to their Instagram, Little Leaf has been open since mid-December. I haven’t checked it out yet but it looks nice.

    I’ve walked into their Union Market store so many times and I’ve never bought a thing from them since just about everything seems to be priced at 200%+ of what you’d pay elsewhere. Considering their success, they must have plenty of customers who don’t mind the obscene markups.

      I used to think they were overpriced as well, but Salt & Sundry was a lifesaver this Christmas.
      I vowed I would no longer bring a generic bottle of wine to holiday parties as a gift. I was pleasantly surprised to find some great unique gifts for people all at about $20. I like the way the store is arranged (baby stuff / girly things / booze related). The store was super bust the time I was there….so happy to see an independent small business thriving in my neighborhood!

      It is a lot of overpriced useless stuff. compare with , e.g., Home Rules which is fun and useful and not always very expensive.

      They have a few little gifty things that aren’t crazy expensive. I bought some tonics there last year and they have cutesy napkins and cards that are expensive for what they are, but won’t break the bank. But yeah, some of the stuff they sell is just laughable. I saw a dog leash made out of rope for $50, like it was literally just a piece of rope with a loop on the ends. But you know, it was made in Brooklyn, so…

      Yeah man for real why does anyone shop anywhere but Amazon amirite?!

      • Khris

        With the new 2-hour delivery option, there’s no reason to shop anywhere else, ever.

      When I go in, I am generally looking for a little something as a hostess or birthday gift, so I focus on things that are in a particular price range ($20-40) and have always found something lovely. While some things are a bit pricey, I haven’t particularly noticed markups – for example, I recently bought a S’Well water bottle as a Christmas gift, and it was priced at exactly the suggested retail price you’d pay elsewhere. And the Brooklyn Candles are the same price as on Etsy. But maybe those are exceptions. Either way, I find it to be a well-curated shop that serves its purpose well. I wouldn’t stock my whole kitchen there, and I definitely don’t NEED anything they sell, but that’s not what it’s for.

    Stopped in before Christmas and got a couple books for my kiddo. I rolled my eyes at a few things, but they also have a lot of cool stuff to splurge on.

    Totally agree about the markup but that’s the neighborhood now. Miss Pixie’s still keeps it real-ish.

    I bought some scent at Salt and Sundry that I love and wear all the time — even though my coworkers think I smell like a hamster cage. Also love the candles and the store is perfect for tasteful, spendy gifts.

      I love that about Pixie’s. Also, I’m going to use “Keepin’ it realish” in a conversation today.
