CHEERS: Stop by the gorgeous Thistle & Clover tonight, where they’ll be pouring holiday bubbly as you hobnob with the geniuses behind labels Lauren Wimmer and Marais USA and shop their trunk show duet. Perks include 20% off Wimmer's jewelry, and treats and takeaways come courtesy of (among others) lovely local florist Stem. 5-8PM. Thistle & Clover, 221 Dekalb Avenue, Fort Greene, Brooklyn; 718-855-5577.
JUST OPEN: Sisters Robyn and Bianca Moreno work hard for the money – in anticipation of opening their LES shop, they went on a buying trip trawling for vintage between Savannah and NYC. Shop their finds (some left pristinely as-is, many reworked with their expert touch) at A Little Wicked, where personal styling advice is part of the overall experience. 279 East Houston Street; 212-777-1190.
KIND OF BLUE: Speaking of seasonal shopping parties, one of our favorite stores anywhere is hosting their annual (second annual – but still annual!) Holiday Shopping Soiree: Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store, home of whimsical delights from all over, will offer 20% off the entire stock, plus holiday sweets and treats to fortify you as you shop. The only downside, really, is that you’ll want to keep everything you buy for other people all to yourself. 6:30-8:30PM. Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store, 65 State Street, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn; 718-522-9848.
