About Us

Brooklyn Makers showcases the work of local entrepreneurs. We’re obsessed about design, handmade quality and responsible manufacturing. Our online shop connects you with a selection of businesses that are passionate about the creative and unique goods they make. Our blog tells the stories of these talented makers. Every few months, you can catch us offline at local markets and events.

Teresa Lagerman founded Brooklyn Makers in 2012. It started exclusively as a blog, followed on Valentine’s Day 2013 by the online store. 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. And that you’ll tell your friends, and they’ll tell their friends, and we’ll all support our great small businesses, giving them the opportunity to continue to amaze us.
