It's been five years since Fuego 718 opened its doors, which is like an eternity for businesses in the financial churn of Williamsburg. The longevity can be credited to the eclectic handmade merchandise sold here by owner Alex—an outgoing señor who seems like an old family friend who knows the story behind all the handbags made from recycled rice bags, bracelets designed from vinyl records, and mirrors shipped from Mexico and Haiti, as well as the symbolism of every milagro charm. Luckily for us, the store is expanding to a much bigger floorspace at the same location, which means even more of the sweet charm that cannot be duplicated (not to mention the insane low prices).
