I would say I've been shopping there about three years and have never walked away empty handed.

Butter @389 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn is a great place to shop...their special shoes, bags, accessories and clothing are all unique. Plus, It's a fun place to shop. I know Butter has been featured in LUCKY Magazine as a special place to shop in Brooklyn. I love to shop at Butter.
