Nearly every time we write about Housing Works, a commenter appears to beg for an outpost in Park Slope. Well, commenter friend, it's your lucky day.

According to Here's Park Slope, the thrift shop, which uses its proceeds to help people living with HIV, will be opening at Fifth Avenue and Garfield Place in the former home of Brooklyn Kitchens and Bath. "A worker on the site confirmed that full-scale construction will soon be underway," reports the blog, "and we can expect the store to be up and running within a couple months." Given Park Slope's reputation as a neighborhood that's full of vintage-wearing activists, it's a wonder this didn't happen sooner.

Housing Works has been introducing itself to the area with a clothing drive. Want to participate? Head this way.
