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. Things we’d love to give or receive as gifts ourselves. You can find the stories behind these talented makers on our blog. Once a year, we go all out at Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar – mark your calendar for Nov 28 & 29.

Teresa Lagerman founded Brooklyn Makers in 2012. A Windsor Terrace resident since 2005, Teresa also runs mimoYmima, a web design company that works mostly with local businesses, and Condensed, a branding agency for startups. She recently co-founded WEB, a women entrepreneurs group. When she’s not tending to all the business stuff, Teresa is chasing her two boys, ages 5 and 7. You can quickly get to her heart with a good croissant and a big cup of coffee.
