We just wanted to give thanks to all our friends and neighbors who made this holiday season bright and festive for our guests and residents. This includes Park Slope Parents, Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club, and the Park-Place Underhill Block Association for donating knits hats, gloves, scarves, socks, toys, and coats. We'd also like to thank Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store for contributing holiday desserts and juice boxes for our annual year-end holiday lunch service. Our guests really appreciated it!

Hot off the press! Please take a look at the first of many of my 2021 Holiday Gift Guides. This one is focused on toys and products for babies and toddlers. Changed the look up this year for my gift guides and really pleased with how it turned out. It was hard just picking 20 gifts but this year I tried to focus on sharing gifts that will grow with children. I also wanted to include a handful of toys that have a social emotional component such as being able to identify facial expressions and emotions since so many of these little kids have spent a majority of their life meeting new people with masks on. If you are looking for something specific for a child in your life, please don't hesitate reaching out. I have so many other amazing suggestions that didn't make It on here.

Hope Learning Toys, Fat Brain Toys, Lakeshore Learning, Magna-Tiles Brand Magnetic Building Sets TwentyTwo Turtledoves are just a few of the wonderful toys that made this year's baby and toddler gift guide. I tried to link as many local toy and gift shops such as LuLu's Cuts & Toys, Norman & Jules, Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store because that's where I intend on doing as much of my holiday shopping this year.

Be sure to check back in the next day or two for the Stocking Stuffer and Small Gift Guide!

About Us

Located in Brooklyn, New York, 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!

Our unique assortment of accessories, toys, home and gift items represents the best of what life has to offer, all under one colorful and cozy roof (and on the internet as well!). The ever-changing, cleverly edited merchandise is bound to inspire, whether you’re searching for a special gift or browsing on a lazy Sunday. But the Blue Ribbon experience doesn’t stop at the register! We seek to expand our shoppers’ minds by offering not only tangible products but also suggestions for how to best utilize them, whether it be recipes, trip ideas or complementing items. In this way, our customers are not just buying a product but are buying an adventure as well.

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 Instructor at the Fashion Institute of Technology where she teaches classes in Product Development, Trend Forecasting and Sustainability.
