Owl and Thistle General Store
Crown Heights
The old-timey feel of this gift shop—tin ceiling, coffee-colored damask-print wallpaper and shelves made from wood and black plumbing pipes—adheres to its general-store theme. Owner Keri Cavanaugh handpicks the products, which are all locally made, sustainable or Fair Trade, including stationery ($3–$16), clothing ($35–$90), housewares ($8–$50) and bath products ($4–$6). Send your dear grandmother a note using Pepper Press letterpress postcards featuring Brooklyn neighborhoods ($3) or Night Owl Paper Goods cards made from sustainably harvested wood ($5). Outfit yourself in Brooklyn label Cora dresses with subtle animal prints ($60–$80) and carry Dirty Kren handmade yoga-mat bags ($15–$20). You’ll also find Sea Grape shampoo bars ($7), Bird Craft colorful beeswax candles ($8–$11), and McClure tasty pickles ($10) and potato chips ($1).

This store moved to a larger location a few blocks away in January of 2014.  It's now at 833 Franklin Ave between Eastern Pkwy & Union.
