*oh, and gee whiz thanks 11211mag for the holla! we agree that we wish the article could have celebrated the old school spots that we love so much on the block as well...:

"Nice guide to local shopping on Graham Avenue (although skewed
entirely toward the arrivistes - how about some of the long-timers?). Of
course my favorite is Siri:

Jewelry and dresses at Treehouse Brooklyn Owner Siri Wilson
crochets copper, gold and silver in her edgy collection of necklaces and
earrings ($48-$280). We also dig Feral Childe's silk shift dresses
($200-$280). Mention TONY to receive 15 percent off Sirius Lux jewelry
and 10 percent off Feral Childe dresses through May 31."

phew! ok...let the good times swing! oh...i mean roll... let's enjoy the warmer daze to come!

Let The Good Times Bloom...;)
