Beauty supply and gag-gift shop Ricky's seems to have just discovered Brooklyn. The company, which recently opened an outpost on Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights, wants to open at least three more stores in the borough in the near future. We get this news from The Brooklyn Eagle, who in turn quotes a Sun piece that we somehow overlooked. The chain, which has 18 locations in Manhattan, wants to plant stores in Park Slope and Williamsburg, where there really is a dearth of makeup shops. Bring on the hair products, sparkles, nail polish, dildos and wigs!
