Fork + Pencil at 221a Court Street
Fork + Pencil Warehouse at 18 Bergen StreetFork + Pencil, the small antiques/consignment boutique at the corner of Court and Warren Streets in Cobble Hill, with its wonderful assortment of unique decorative items, antique jewelry, a carefully curated book selection, and imaginative toys for kids. Since 2009, owners Alex Grabcheski and Tally Blumberg have been donating the proceeds of the business, after costs, to local public schools and selected charities, which include Council on the Environment of New York City and Rooftop Films.
You may be less familiar with Fork + Pencil's Warehouse just down the block at 18 Bergen Street. It's a treasure trove of larger antiques pieces spread out over two floors. But even here, amidst the armoires, chests and bookcases, one can find lovely smaller pieces of silverware, stemware and china. And if you are a collector of slightly more eclectic items, you probably will find something to your liking here as well.
With new items coming in all the time, it's very tempting to stop by often. Knowing that the proceeds will go to good causes makes the temptation even sweeter.
