Proprietor Ann Lopatin has opened the The Blue Ribbon General Store at 365 State Street (and Bond). It promises to carry a “unique assortment of home accessories and gift items for kids, pets and adults that represent the best of what life has to offer, all under one colorful and cozy roof.”
“The concept for Blue Ribbon General Store- a destination for items that can enhance your daily life- has been in my heart and dreams for years, so I am thrilled it is now a reality in this charming Brooklyn corner space,” says Lopatin in a press release. “Everything we carry has earned the “Blue Ribbon” for cleverness, wit and practicality, and comes with useful tips, trivia and suggestions to help you or the recipient enjoy your purchase to its fullest.”
Online commerce and an in-store learning center are planned for 2008.
