Adding to the hodge podge of nationalities melting together in Greenpoint is Budin, a recently-opened shop on Greenpoint Avenue that specializes in Scandinavian home goods. The shop was conceived by a film colorist and a singer-songwriter who united for their passion in the minimalist aesthetic of the culture.
Expect to find Icelandic sheep's wool snuggies for $475, pendant lamps for $320, and Finnish wood-and-ceramic cups that'll cost you $55 for a pair. Don't forget to stay caffeinated while you browse—in the front, a café offers Stockholm- and Oslo-based brands of coffees. Consider this your connecting store on the way to the neighborhood's Polish section.
