The Shinbone Alley Story

Shinbone Alley.  A quiet spot in a city known for its vibrant and endless possibilities, just off Bleeker and Lafayette streets in the heart of the Bowery in the southern portion of Manhattan, New York City.  This area of NYC is not only our home, but it is also the epicenter of visionaries and creatives of all kinds.

Our passion for craftsmanship, how the artisans participation speaks to the human need and profound desire to find meaning in all things, has led us to Shinbone Alley.

The Alley that I once passed getting my morning joe has been brought to life through Shinbone Alley, the online marketplace where you can find unusual gifts, unique home goods, and one-of-a-kind products for your home and workplace.

Craftsmen, artisans, designers, artists whose accomplishments are as extraordinary as their lives

Our retail concept is to introduce artisans and makers from all over the world to shoppers like you, who are committed to sustainability and supporting their local economies. The result is a large catalog stocked with hand-picked, uncommon, and beautifully curated gifts and products for every occasion and person on your shopping list: the man or woman who has everything, keepsakes for your children and grandchildren, four-legged friends, housewarming and hostess gifts.

Whatever the occasion, whoever you seek to surprise and delight, you will find something in the Alley.

We welcome you to experience our digital marketplace and if you like what you see… share it with a friend.
