A Brooklyn artisanal gift shop with a nautical theme and European goods has opened a Greenport location.

Paspartou — named after the French term for “matte” — features an mix of home goods collected by owner Gosia Rojek on her travels.

European ceramics and textiles, hand made jewelry, rugs, cushions and nautically themed tote bags fill the Front Street shop. A native of Poland, Rojek travels back to her home country three to four times a year, bringing back exquisite artifacts.

“I think Poland is a gold mine for beautiful things that most people don’t get to see,” she said.
