Brooklyn – Williamsburg
252 Grand St between Driggs and Roebling Aves
Lest you start to think the toughies in Williamsburg have gone soft and sincere, there's Maiden, Brooklyn, an artist-run storefront where the goods come served with a side of sarcasm. Tiny and sparse, the gallerylike venue showcases tongue-in-cheek handicrafts such as sculptor Jenny Walty's bike-lock--like Badd Ass Burg key chain laden with hefty gold charms ($50) and a handknit 40-ounce beer cozy from Crash in the Sky ($90).
