The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Cynthia's Final Toush
The Q noted the fine work of Cynthia Campbell years ago after noting her move to her own store, but until Mrs. FlatBed starting coming home with beautiful butterfly garments by her, I didn't really get it. Why would I? I'm a dude who buys his clothes at Burlington Coat Factory. Because (get this) it's a step up from the Target house brands, like Merona (who out there doesn't own at least one Merona? Come on, be honest). A real sharp-dressed man I am. Sharp as butter.
The wife, on the other hand, is known around town for her handsome outfits and trendless style. Not only did she recently start wearing a couple of Cynthia's handsown technicolor butterfly gowns, but she bought some for friends who have their noses in the know when it comes to looking good. The look seems kinda muumuu to me, but they seem super comfortable and they're eye-catchers. What the hell is the Q talking about, you might ask? Take a peek at THIS dress:
She also crochets and if not yet will soon have a ton of handmade winter items, mittens, hats scarves.
Y'all owe it to yourself to see her shop and consider how much better to wear one of her super reasonable pieces of all kinds of garments, rather than shop some chain store with Clearance Racks of crap that you buy only because it's on sale not because you really like it, probably made by children in Indonesia or 7-day-16-hour indentured servants in the Northern Mariana Islands.
(I tried to snap a shot of Cynthia but she was feeling shy. Lovely woman. Please do stop by and let her show you her wares.)\
