More Holiday Gift Guide 2007

Tonight (Dec. 13) some 150 shops in Park Slope are staying open until 10pm to celebrate the season!

This first-annual Snowflake Celebration is also a way for us to thank our neighbors for shopping locally this holiday and all throughout the year. Come out tonight to share in the cheer!

Now, if you're still looking for great gifts, you have plenty of time. Naturally, Greenjeans has something special for everyone on your list (and for you!). We box things up very nicely, too, and ship anywhere in the world.

Style meets substance, craft becomes luxury, and luxury is always a great gift!
