Off the action of bustling Atlantic Avenue, which is a shopping destination in itself, sits an unassuming, postage-stamp sized boutique called A Lovely Universe. This charming setup is chockfull of Parisian-inspired girly delights, featuring one of a kind jewelry and vintage inspired items for lady, baby and home.
Like happening into Narnia’s closet, or through a secret (albeit: fashionable) portal, the shop is nestled neatly onto Bond Street in Boerum Hill. You can almost miss it!
Upon entering, I saw the young owner, Sarah Cunningham, sitting cozy at the front desk, surrounded by delicate necklaces. Later we began to speak once she complimented my choice in a recently arrived Fair Isle sweater with side slits. Exceedingly open and charming, the shop matches Sarah’s approachable personality. No pretense; just happily curated wares!
If you’re looking for the perfect compliment to a Sunday stroll with warm coffee, and a hot croissant, visit A Lovely Universe. This quaint, perfectly decorated shop will have you “oohing” and “ahhing” (or painting your lips or nails a classic red) in no time.
