Gowanus' Third continues to go ever more boutique. Right next door to 512, the old Pascone barber shop featured in the 70s documentary, Third Avenue: Only the Strong Survive, a new store is set to open. Hazel Village, at 510, will be selling stuffed, heirloom-quality woodland friends (the toys, not the neighbor, Morbid Anatomy kind). The business has been around for four years, supplying to individual customers, & nationwide & international retailers including the likes of Barney's, J.Crew and ABC Home. Its product line is endorsed by Martha Stewart. The store-opening is set for July 31st.
510 Third was sold in late '13 to Manhattan real estate company Soho Suppliers Inc. for $1,500,000,
