Get ready for some amazing baked goods on 7th Avenue, but prepare to say farewell to a couple of businesses that have been around a while. A look at some of the comings and goings in our area recently:
• Buttermilk Bakeshop is scheduled to open this February in the old Tasti D-Lite location at 339 7th Avenue near 9th Street. South Slope News spoke with pastry chef and Prospect Park Southwest neighbor Katie Rosenhouse, who says that they’ll serve a variety of sweets, so that “everyone will be able to find a favorite.”
• Boing Boing, the maternity shop at 204 6th Avenue, will be put up for sale, according to a piece written by owner Karen Paperno in the Huffington Post (h/t FiPS). She cites personal problems like health issues she and her family have dealt with, along with an increase of online shopping and a struggle to pay the bills, as reasons for the decision. Park Slope Parents are currently calling on neighbors to help Karen and her business with donations, and to simply shop.
