Spring is here and so is Stork, a new local clothing and gift store for children 6 and younger. Located just a few blocks north of the Franklin Avenue 4-train stop in Crown Heights, Stork’s mission is to provide families with clothing, shoes, and gifts that are affordable, high-quality, eclectic, and (almost always) designed by people who live nearby, says owner Eyana Carballo.

Carlo Finzi-Dubois, 4½, models high-quality, affordable clothing from Stork.The store offers a wide range of prices (shirts run from $25-$38) and adheres to a simple aesthetic. “It’s for everyone, whether you just moved to Crown Heights or you’ve lived here with your family for years,” says Carballo, who struggled to find a children’s clothing store she liked upon moving to Brooklyn in 2008. “It’s clothing without letters and logos all over. It’s stand-out pieces that are as appropriate for Easter Sunday as they are for hanging out in the park.”

Carballo credits her opening success in large part to her close relationship with the clothing designers, most of whom live in Brooklyn and have a distinct feel for the neighborhood’s needs, trends, and values. Stork is open seven days a week and donates a portion of all sales to The League Education Treatment Center, a Crown Heights agency for people with disabilities.
