When my friend Candace visited me a few weeks ago, we rambled all over the part of Brooklyn where I life. One of our stops was
In God We Trust, a boutique on a quieter block of Bedford Avenue.
We browsed and tried on sunglasses.
Then I noticed these roughly engraved pendants.
I won’t be buying one of these R rated charms for my mother. But for one of my smart ass friends? Perhaps. How about you?

Mast Brothers is specialty chocolatier in my neighborhood. When I walk by the shop on my way to my favorite coffee shop, it’s hard not to stop in. They make the bars and other products right here on N 3rd Street and the smells that seep out are tantalizing.
A recent New York Magazine
cover story lumped Mast Brothers in with “twee” artisanal Brooklyn and a book is forthcoming.
But for me, the chocolate speaks for itself.
Bars like sea salt and Stumptown coffee are my favorite Brooklyn gifts to give.
Take note: the serrano chile bar is just as spicy as promised!

Imagine my surprise: a sad trio of granny panties. Continue reading
Valentine’s Day is February 14. Every year.
It’s not a surprise like, say, Easter. Or President’s Day.
February 13 shopping says “I didn’t plan to care but perhaps I should do…something.”
You last minute Larries, you.
I don’t get to keep it though. This fun neckwear is a gift for my 15 year old cousin. Think she’ll like it?
This is a real care package sent to me by my mother: socks, a bangle, chocolates from Scranton’s finest.
