Rumors were going ’round that Dear Fieldbinder, a fashion-forward boutique on Smith between Butler and Bergen, would close due to spiking rents. But owner Lara Fieldbinder told South Brooklyn Post that any talk of her shop closing is nothing more than “vicious rumors.”
“We are not closing,” Fieldbinder said. The shop opened in 2005 and is a staple for the Carroll Gardens-Boerum Hill community, as well as a draw for fashionable gals from all over.
Increasing rents along Court and Smith have led to a changing scene around here in the last few years, and Dear Fieldbinder is definitely a place that locals would like to see stick around.
