If you’ve left your V-Day shopping till the last minute and are already feeling that end-of-month pinch, don’t worry. Shophood, an app that culls products from some 180 shops around Brooklyn and Manhattan, knows exactly where you should take that bag of pennies.
In anticipation of the big day this Sunday, the app’s founders, Brooklynites Lukas Thoms and Aaron Podolny, analyzed their jewelry offerings and found that Williamsburg is the most affordable neighborhood in which to buy your bling.
Milly & Earl at 351 Graham Avenue was the top-rated store by affordability, with an average jewelry price of $47. Species by the Thousands, Verameat, Norbu Bijoux and In God We Trust all made the top 10, too. As for individual items, the stamped heart necklace/bracelet at Catbird is a festive yet frugal find at just twelve bucks.
Shophood allows you to search for products and prices, save favorites, and map your way to whatever it is that you’re looking for.
