LIBRA formerly known as Sweet Charity
Welcome to the e-commerce site for the boutique LIBRA in Park Slope, Brooklyn NY. After almost 9 lovely years as Sweet Charity, we wanted a change and re-branded as LIBRA in 2015 and moved to Eighth Avenue at 13th Street. Now, LIBRA carries ONLY global fair trade and products made in the USA.
We promise to keep curating a special collection of home goods, gifts, jewelry and clothing with an emphasis on local artisans and we hope to distinguish our retail experience with excellent customer service, beautiful packaging and our support for Best Friends, an animal rescue sanctuary in Utah. We have the perfect gift for any style or price point, and you purchase supports a local business, and fair trade practices!
Follow us on FACEBOOK for more updates, and feel free email us at Info@ShopLibra.com for more information. ARTISTS and ARTISANS we prefer you please email us your information, and do not except cold calls for submissions. Thank you!
See FACEBOOK for updated hours! Closed Tuesdays.
Some nice stuff people have written about Sweet Charity, now LIBRA! 🙂
Apartment Therapy – I don’t think it’d be possible to squeeze in one more dish or pillow in the little store situated on 7th Ave in Park Slope. Not to worry, it’s not quantity over quality in this home goods and gift store, its quality and quantity. Sweet Charity leaves you wishing you had more hands for carrying and money for spending! PLEASE NOTE we moved to EIGHTH avenue!
Country Home Magazine – “Every inch of this long, narrow store is packed with colorful, affordable finds, such as pillows, paper napkins, candles, vases, and more. “It’s a bonanza for hostess, shower, or housewarming gifts,” Jen says. Better yet, a treat for yourself. ”
New York Magazine – “While the store does carry a few doggie bowls, it’s actually an outpost of handmade gifts and home goods for those on two legs, not four. Brightly hued Eigan Arts pottery, pillows, travel bags, baby clothes, picture frames, and scented candles overflow from the baskets and shelves on either side of the small space, which resembles a long, crowded hallway. Locally made items are the most fun, though…. quirky, memorable presents.” — Rachel Corbett
The Gothamist – “Sweet Charity…has a variety of lovely, and unique, gifts, from vintage table linens to floral gardening hats and jewelry. Gothamist is currently enamored with the floppy gardening hat with matching gloves; it just might be strange to be seen wearing them while watering our one lonely houseplant. However, it is the perfect place to find a special gift while giving to some needy animals as well. Gothamist bought some Mothers’ Day gifts there; Mom was delighted.”
The Gowanus Lounge – “Check out this home goods and gift store in Park Slope whose sales support animal rescue charities. They’ve got just about any cool thing you would want to give someone for a home and you’ll be helping out a very worthwhile cause in the process. This is a cool Seventh Avenue shop with a conscience. If you love animals, consider doing some of your holiday shopping here–buy a gift and improve a creature’s life. ”
BuyInGreene.com — “The Tannersville location […] offers plenty of room to showcase their unique variety of Made in the USA or Fair Trade products. The boutique is filled with colorful, affordable finds, such as pillow, vintage table linens, candles, baby clothes, picture frames, vases, gifts for pets, and much more.” Please note this location is CLOSED.
