You’ve probably never heard of Ohio Knitting Mills, a Cleveland-based company that was the source of sweaters for everyone from Pendleton to Saks. Especially since, the company closed several years ago. But, they left behind a collection of over 10,000 samples! Now, artist Steven Tatar has rescued them and opened an Ohio Knitting Mills in Brooklyn. He has enough to keep the store going for at least three years, but once the sweaters are gone, they’re gone so you'd better get going if you want a piece of that! And with prices from $68.00 it's a pretty affordable piece of history. Located at 231 Smith St. (nr. Butler St.) in Boerum Hill.
