COBBLE HILL—Boutique Epaulet is hosting a Sailor Jenny trunk show this Sunday to coincide with the Smith Street Fun Day Street Fair. In a tent in front of their store at 231 Smith Street, they'll have "women's tees, dresses, and tanks and men's tees, work shirts, and polos, and a whole range of bags, small leather goods, and other surprises, including the BEST umbrella that you have ever seen." What does it have on all the other umbrellas? We are suddenly dying to know. [Racked Inbox]
PROSPECT HEIGHTS—Brooklyn is really going all out with the neighborhood fairs this weekend. Should you happen to be at the Vanderbilt Avenue Car Free Afternoon on Sunday between 12pm and 5pm, stop by Red Lipstick Boutique at 560 Vanderbilt for a sale on samples and overstock of jewelry by Jane Diaz. The store's promising precious and semi-precious stones and "necklaces of delicious descriptions." [Racked Inbox]
