Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store 10th Anniversary


Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store 10th Anniversary
NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2017 : Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store is thrilled to announce that we will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary on October 4, 2017 with a party and charitable fundraising event.

We are so grateful for our amazing customers, vendors and supporters for the past ten years of business.

The evening's fun will begin at the shop, 232 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, at 6pm with drinks & hors d'oeuvres for invited guests. Our LIVE auction will begin at 7:30pm. We will be auctioning off our iconic United States License Plate map by artist Aaron Foster along with generous gift baskets donated by some of our favorite vendors. It is our hope to raise $10,000 for national and local charities, such as the National Park Services, Planned Parenthood, ACLU, CHIPS and more.

Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store is a fun yet sophisticated shop that combines the modernity of a well-lived urban lifestyle with the comfort and charm of a country general store. Our General Store specializes in all things fun and functional. We have something for everyone! Over the last ten years, Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store has grown from a small shop on a Boerum Hill side street to over 1,100 square feet of shopping fun in thriving 5th Avenue in Park Slope Brooklyn. The ecommerce website www.blueribbongeneralstore.com launched in 2008 and continues to get local and national press attention for its unique offerings.

Ann Cantrell ("Annie") opened ABRGS in October 2007 in Brooklyn, New York and the website soon followed. Her passion for items and ideas she believes to be the "Best in Show" has helped bring the shop to life and live up to its namesake. Ann is also an Assistant Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology where she teaches classes in Product Development, Trend Forecasting and Sustainability.

Sponsors include: 5th Avenue BID, Austin Eastciders, W&P Designs, Sweet Paul Magazine, FCTRY and more.
