Labor of Love

There is a beautiful new store in Greenpoint called Le Grenier. Opened just two months ago, owner Maya Marzolf has been working on the space and tending the lovely garden in the back for over a year. As she said, it is truly a labor of love. She even laid the wood floor herself (salvaged from a space undergoing demolition in Manhattan!). It is clear that every item is selected and displayed with care, from the antique ice box to the 1950s Gourmet cookbook to the contemporary glassware. And there is a tempting croquet set - it's not for sale, but shoppers are advised to play a round in the garden. It's all very dreamy. I was there twice in one day and I can't wait to go back!
