About Us

Brooklyn Makers showcases the work of local entrepreneurs. We curate unique items that stand out for their design, handmade quality and responsible manufacturing. Our blog tells the stories behind these talented makers. Every few months, you can catch us offline at local markets and events – don’t miss our upcoming Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar on Dec 14th!

Teresa Lagerman founded Brooklyn Makers in 2012. It started exclusively as a blog, followed a year later by the online shop. A Windsor Terrace resident since 2005, Teresa also runs mimoYmima, a web design company that works mostly with local businesses. She has two kids, ages 4 and 6. In her spare time, she’s devising a way to add a 25th hour to her days. You can quickly get to her heart with a good croissant and a big cup of coffee.

We hope you’ll find some stuff you like here. Thank you for spreading the Brooklyn love!
