"Eponymy" is the state of being named after something, so if a store is actually named Eponymy, does that mean its name reflects...its name? Which in turn reflects its name? In a sequence that goes on, echo-style, throughout eternity? It's probably best not to spend too much time thinking about the title of Park Slope's newest boutique, on Bergen between 5th Ave and Flatbush. Better just to check out the wares: Dresses and other womenswear and work by local artists. [Gowanus Lounge]
