The Brass Owl – Astoria Gets A Real Women’s Shoe Store

Sweet relief has come to Astoria in the form of a shoe store. The Brass Owl opened on Ditmars Ave. in Astoria this weekend to offer local shoe loving ladies an opportunity to finally shop in the neighborhood. Former fashion buyer and store owner Nicole Panettieri, chose a simple collection of basics such as flats, rain boots, simple heals, and lace up boots  which is a welcome relief for the stroller strutting population of Astoria. The Brass Owl’s collection of brands such as Steve Madden, Chinese Laundry, Dolce Vita, Franco Sarto and others are chic and wallet friendly with shoes selling between $40-$120.


The Brass Owl is not only a shoe store, shoes just happen to be the item that made me most excited! Among their inventory are  Hobo wallets , cute canvas bags by  Seltzer Goods, jewelry, bras, and tights.

All in all, The Brass Owl is a welcome addition to a neighborhood overrun with bars, restaurants, and coffee shops thus far. Support this local business by checking them out soon.
