Bed-Stuy shop focuses on Afrocentric goods
The shelves of the Nicholas Brooklyn store are filled with history and culture, and customers say they're glad to see a store with Afrocentric products move into Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Owner Monique Benjamin says the shop moved from its previous Fort Greene location to Bed-Stuy last month.
The store has a wide selection of hard-to-find books about black history, slavery and culture, in addition to Afrocentric jewelry and special oils.
Nicholas Brooklyn also features a book club, healing circle and yoga.
