So, do you know what today is? It's exactly one week until Christmas Eve. Yeah. Take a moment to take that one in. So now that you realize that you are ridiculously behind on your holiday shopping, take a deep breath (or a Xanax). We just wanted to let you know that we've compiled yet another handy-dandy guide should you find yourself wandering the fantastically diverse, family-oriented streets of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill:
Re-Pop: 68 Washington Ave, 718-260-8032.
Why? It was named NY Mag's best thrift store of 2007. 'Nuff said.
What to get: Something wacky and weird. Maybe a cow skull? A globe lamp? Copper storage sparrows? Who knows what you'll find.

Stuart and Wright: 85 Lafayette Ave, 718-797-0011.
Why? Because they're fully stocked with a ton of R29 faves, like A.P.C, Band of Outsiders, Beard & Bangs and Steven Alan.
What to get: We like to stick to things that we know will fit, ie shoes, bangles and bags.
Karen's Body Beautiful: 436 Myrtle Ave, 718-797-4808.
Why? Because this is the perfect time of year to stay in and groom.
What to get? Smelly soaps, creamy moisturizers and lovely soy candles.
Thistle and Clover: 221 DeKalb Ave, 718-855-5577.Why? Because they offer goods from up-and-comers who have yet to make it big (and raise their prices). We love rooting for the underdog! Plus, they serve coffee and treats to Sunday shoppers.
What to get? Delicate, adorable, and relatively cheap jewelry.
