Brooklyn – Cobble Hill
270 Court St between Butler and Douglass Sts
Expect a dash of feminism with your paper goods; this surprising gift shop takes its name from Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own, in which Woolf counters the argument that women are not as creative as men. Since 1994, this makeshift flea market has been promoting original artists (male and female alike) and helping them sell their work. Sort through a hodgepodge of work from Thailand ($2--$200), hand-painted candle holders ($18 for two), tie-dyed gift boxes ($2) and handmade beaded light switch plates ($12).
