The Primary Essentials is the ultimate gift shop with a special selection of artisanal goods and objects for everyday life. Textiles, ceramics, jewelry, books, and more, sourced from independent craftsmen around the world, are expertly placed around the renovated brownstone of the Atlantic Avenue space in Brooklyn, and the quaint shop on Market Street in Nolita. Lauren Snyder, founder of TPE, explains, “I always hope that customers will feel comfortable when they are in the shop. I want them to be inspired by their surroundings but at ease at the same time.”

The Brooklyn location is larger, offering more space for furniture, pillows, and textiles, while the Nolita location is a bit more polished with a smaller selection of goods. The latter is situated along a row of small, similarly thoughtful stores and cafes. It’s a must-stop shop for gifts, planning dinner parties, or updating the objects around your home.
