The Brooklyn Women’s Exchange, 55 Pierrepont Street (between Hicks and Henry), will remain open this summer, unlike previous summers when it closed June through early September, occasioned by the fact that it is staffed by volunteers (disclosure: your correspondent’s wife is one of those volunteers), most of whom take summer vacations. This summer enough volunteers are available to keep it open. During June, the Exchange will be open its usual hours of Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. During July and August it will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from noon to 5:00 p.m. It will be closed July 4th through 6th.
The Exchange is a not-for-profit craft and gift shop that supports “craftspeople from Brooklyn and beyond.”
The exchange’s offerings include children’s clothes, toys, and books as well as items for adults, including t-shirts, housewares, condiments, and books.
