Gifts and goods designed & handmade in Brooklyn, NY by Annie Bukhman. I believe in supporting hand made, supporting local, and supporting quality. All materials I use are sourced and purchased from vendors in the USA.
All items are currently designed, hand cut, and hand crafted by me from start to finish. After years in New York’s fashion industry as a graphic designer, I felt a powerful force pushing me in a new direction. I gained so much knowledge working in those big companies, which I am truly grateful for. However, I also learned it’s not where I want to be forever.I love being my own boss, and challenging myself daily. I’ve come to realize I’m not satisfied unless its a bit of a challenge. I love creating and seeing myself improve with each collection, project, and order.I grew up in Massachusetts, and graduated from college in New Hampshire for Graphic Design.
I have lived in New York for about 9 years. Before starting Gift Shop Brooklyn I worked in NYC’s fashion industry. I now live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband Alex and our two cats Murray Hewitt and Sophia Petrillo.
