Hanging in the window of Williamsburg’s tiny jewelry and knick-knack boutique is a banner that reads, “Beauty in the Little Things.” This is Catbird’s motto. Trinkets like horseshoes, tiny China tea sets, and cat coasters sit alongside colorful wrapping paper, stationary and cheeky notes. The shop’s white, antique displays house a variety of dainty gold and silver rings, earrings and necklaces from the likes of Katie Diamond, Jezebel, and Bittersweets. Catbird even carries locally-made wedding and engagement rings that sparkle with black and cognac diamonds. In addition to offering a wide array of glittery baubles, the store’s shelves are also stacked with delicious soy candles, soaps and perfumes, making it the best-smelling boutique on Bedford Avenue. The collection also includes Catbird’s signature candle line in scents like “Tarot Deck” and “Campfire.” All in all, this curated treasure trove is worthy of much exploration.
