Next time you find yourself walking around South Williamsburg, try to get lost around S. 4th and Driggs. There you’ll find A Thousand Picnics, the collaborative brainchild of jewelry designers Species by the Thousands and Cold Picnic. A Thousand Picnics is like an indie dream come true–filled with handmade soaps, candles, brass jewelry, macramé plant hangers, and Species’ signature pillows with bearded men. It’s the perfect rustic space dressed in oak floors and filled top to bottom with curiosities.
The collaboration between designers Erica (of Species by the Thousands) and Phoebe and Peter (of Cold Picnic) has come together very organically. In their own words, “A Thousand Picnics is built on the love of arts and crafts, handmade experiments and animals.” Just that leaves us wanting more.
