We know how it goes with Valentine's Day. You plan and primp and re-think and then plan again. Or you might be baffled by the holiday all together. And like some of us at Catbird, the day just entirely sneaks up on you, until you finally notice how stocked on heart shaped chocolates your local drugstore is.However you like to do V-Day, we promise you'll love this dreamy date our friends at Vensette and ShopBAZAAR have planned - and so will your dude, best gal, or lucky mom. Whoever you choose to share it with!One lucky kitten will win a set of rings from yours truly and a $1,000 shopping spree from Fleur du Mal - maker of the prettiest underthings. Then you'll be whisked off to hair and makeup from the expert artists at Vensette, and end the day with a reservation for two at Bar Primi, courtesy of The New Potato. So celebrate Valentine's Day your way, but let us do the rest!
Enter here, Kittens!xo,Sriya
Hi Williamsburg kittens, you early girls of Catbird! In creating a special candle for our 10th year, you alone were our muse. In your busted tee and ballet flats, with your affinity for delicate jewels, the ones you prefer to buy yourself. The way you sneak cigarettes outside of your window and wear your mother's old trench coat.
And to everyone who has joined us since, Kitten is our thank you to you too. We hope you enjoy this bottled up piece of our favorite neighborhood. We can't wait to show you more of the special things we've made to celebrate this milestone and you. Our hope is that some pieces will surprise you and that a few you've been waiting for.
Coming this November.
Kitten Candle is a limited edition, available online and in store now. Notes of musk, amber, and hand-picked violets.
- We made a sweater! Our friends at Wool and the Gang a.k.a the coolest girls in knitting helped us design this oh-so-cozy and perfectly chunky wool number. Emblazoned with 'Kitten' across the front, we think it'll make a fine addition to any kitten's winter rotation.And though we really want to keep it, what better way to celebrate a one-of-a-kind than with a giveaway? Along with our custom WATG x Catbird sweater, one lucky winner will also receive a set of three stacking rings from our house collection: a Mignon Memory ring, Threadbare, and Lovecat.Enter here for your chance to win. Good luck, kittens!
It's official, we've landed on Driggs! No no, it's not a move. Our little storefront remains happily ever after at 219 Bedford. But follow the scent of a burning Fig Leaf candle two blocks north, and you'll find yourself at 540 Driggs Avenue, home of Catbird Wedding Annex. It's an intimate place we created especially for seekers of shimmering stones and golden bands.We designed the space as a room for three - you, your other half, and an expert Catbirdette. A crystal ship chandelier and a neon sign - Oh My Stars - dances light across worn wood floors. Smokey stones set in rose gold, roughly-hewn bands, and instant heirlooms line dove-grey cabinets with gilded knobs. A black and white of Jane and Serge hangs tacked to a corner wall.Through the year, we'll also be unveiling exclusive designs from both our favorite jewelers and our own studio. We can't wait to show you new pieces here first. xo.Catbird Wedding Annex is open Sat and Sun, 10 to 6 pm and Fridays by appointment.

- Two things all of the kittens love: jewels and boots! So when Loeffler Randall, the brand behind all of our favorite booties, asked us to style their Frankie Moto Boots while showing them around Catbird we obviously jumped at the opportunity!
I gave the LR team a peek into a day at Catbird which means bouncing around Brooklyn from our storefront to our office on the south side of Williamsburg and everything in between! I was so happy to find out they are the perfect partner for a day of running around. Not only are they comfortable but they layer nicely with almost anything in your fall wardrobe from skinnies to tights or even with a rolled up pair of baggy boyfriend jeans! LR isn't joking around when they say the Frankie's are a go-anywhere, do-anything moto boot!
And an extra special treat from Loeffler Randall, 15% off their amazing shoe selection just for you with the code LRXCATBIRD now through Sunday! Shop Loeffler Randall.
We can't begin to thank all of you kittens enough for sharing the touching (and some down right funny - we're looking at you T&A) reasons why you would choose to have specific letters stamped onto the Bittersweets Snake Charming Ring - each entry made us smile and a few, like the lucky winner, left us a little teary-eyed.
Lets say a big congrats to Jasmine Tanasy for not only winning the contest but also for her upcoming wedding!! Jasmine, we cannot even imagine of a better way to pay tribute to your kittens than to have their initials adorn the slithering Snake Charming Ring for you to see each day! Please email [email protected] to coordinate receiving your ring. xx

Amazing artist and friend of Catbird, Sara Woster, made this video for us for Mother's Day to show our favorite new Mother's Day Gift. We got a little misty when we first watched it. We hope you love it as much as we do.
