The Brooklyn Women’s Exchange had a party this evening to celebrate its 160th year of providing a market for handcrafted goods made in Brooklyn and beyond, and a place to shop for interesting and sometimes hard to find gifts, children’s clothing, toys, books, stationery, and other items. A considerable number of BWE officers, board members, volunteers, crafts consignors, and friends were there.
