Walking into Swallow is like entering into another world; beautiful textures, colors, and shapes surround you everywhere, and you quickly lose track of time looking at every single object. There's a unique selection of handblown glass and ceramics, but I was most impressed with the selection of jewelry, all made by hand, with semi-precious stones, silver, and carved jade. If you haven't been here yet, it's definitely worth the trip out to Brooklyn.
Pros: unique selection, quality, organic
Cons: closes at 7pm, hard to find, not kid-friendly
