Williamsburg Holiday Shopping Guide

by Cathy Bruneau

miniminimarket.jpg
Mini Minimarket

We know, we know. By designating this a "holiday" shopping guide, we've chosen sides in the big "Holiday Friend or Foe" debate. Truth be told, we could care less about the whole controversy. Call it The Williamsburg Christmas Guide if you prefer. Call it The Billyburg Hipster Guide. Rename Christmas "Freedom Day" if you want. It's all the same to us. We only celebrate Festivus anyway.

The controversy we do care about, involves the MTA's shoddy service. Slow weekend commutes and service interruptions are hardly mollified by the fare reductions. We'll pay the extra dollar, just provide better service.

Luckily, we can get all of our shopping done right here in the 'hood. Who wants a cashmere sweater from J Crew anyway?

Plus, in Williamsburg, you get the added pleasure of hearing hipsters debate whether to buy Care Bear belt buckles or limited edition Belgian screamcore CDs as stocking stuffers.

Here's a list of some great local places to do your shopping:
