Business of the Month: Cobblestones 314 East 9th Street
Can you imagine opening a shop at the age of 21 and still running it successfully more than three decades later? Delanee Koppersmith’s winning charm keeps Cobblestones filling the vintage needs of stylish folks from near and far. Learn all about this East Village native’s shop in our article on Cobblestones, our Business of the Month for June.
“It’s a very social thing, a store. My closest friends, I’ve met here,” Koppersmith told us.
The local fan who nominated Cobblestones for Business of the Month said: “Not only has she sold wonderful vintage clothing at reasonable prices, she has helped many elderly people she has met through the store…[she] takes a personal interest in the people that walk in and out of her establishment.”
With GVSHP's "Business of the Month" program, each month a local, independent business is featured on GVSHP's website, blog and social media, to showcase one of our neighborhoods' great and unique commercial treasures. The program underscores what makes each business so valued and distinctive. We hope it will increase support and patronage, aiding our local small businesses' health and viability.
We're asking you, the public, to nominate your favorite businesses for consideration for our "Business of the Month." To nominate a business just fill in this brief form. See our past Businesses of the Month here.
