I recently came across this article in The New York TImes about The Brooklyn Women's Exchange. I am pleasantly surprised to learn that there is a place in Brooklyn Heights, that supports the efforts of artisans by selling their handicraft.
I visited the store on a recent Saturday with my daughter. We looked through everything that the store has to offer. From knitted sweaters and scarves to baby booties. My daughter hurried me away from the baby items as she wanted to look at the jewelry display. There were some very unique items. One that caught our eyes was a bracelet made from two silver forks. You could also find wooden toys, ceramics, aprons, T-shirts, totes, and many other items. If you live nearby, you should visit the store. We could not leave the store without buying a pretty little charm for my daughter.
The Brooklyn Women's Exchange is a non profit organization that has been here since 1854. You can read more about it here.
