Supply chain issues across the globe continue to put stress on local businesses, making it difficult to keep shelves stocked as the holiday shopping season approaches.
Green in BKLYN is an eco-friendly essentials and gift shop in Clinton Hill that is struggling to get many locally sourced items from candles to greeting cards.
The cozy Myrtle Avenue shop still sells Brooklyn mugs, hats and T-shirts - but now in fewer sizes and colors because of shortages.
Owner Elissa Olin says she brings in what she can get and has made adjustments to carry different lines and brands to keep products in her store.
Olin urges customers to be flexible and try something new and to be kind and patient this holiday season if they can't find exactly what they're looking for because of delays.
