Yes, everyone is excited to snag some great deals at some of the big box stores and national department stores, but that doesn’t mean we can forget about our small business neighbors who work to make our community better every day!
You can support them on Small Business Saturday, which falls on Saturday, November 30 this year, by shopping at some of these stores located near your Sagamore apartment. Here, you can find clothing, gifts, electronics and homewares that are one-of-a-kind!
Magpie, located at 488 Amsterdam Ave, New York which is a six minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a petite boutique featuring eco-friendly gifts, stationery, home decor and accessories.
Many of Magpie’s products are locally made or designed, constructed from recycled, sustainable materials or handcrafted by fair trade cooperatives from around the world. The selection ranges from artisanal toffee made in Harlem to silk bracelets crocheted by a women’s cooperative in Turkey.
West NYC, located at 147 W 72nd St, New York which is five minutes from your Sagamore apartment, is a brick-lined store known for its collection of brand-name sneakers, plus casual and athletic apparel. They’ve been a valued member of the neighborhood for over 10 years.
West NYC has since become a destination for limited edition footwear, attracting both locals and celebrity clientele alike. Besides stocking the best from Nike, Adidas, and Puma, West NYC has collaborated on sneakers with New Balance and Saucony. They’ve also developed their own line of apparel, delving into their New York heritage for inspiration.
