Park Slope has some nice neighborhood shopping strips along Fifth and Seventh Aves, including a quirky, fun gift shop that helps a writing nonprofit, and some vintage clothing shops (especially a gigantic one in Gowanus). The further north (toward Flatbush Ave) you go, the more chichi the shops get (clothing boutiques, artsy jewelry, high-end stationery, housewares and gifts, etc). At Industry City you'll find trendy shops selling wines, chocolate, bespoke flower arrangements, designer housewares and the like.
