On Orchard Street, this ‘Sweet’ Store Slings Books and Brine
In the spiritual home of pickles, it’s the marriage of books and brine on the Lower East Side.
Indeed, a new small business called Sweet Pickle Books just opened at 47 Orchard Street. The newcomer, as previously reported, is a secondhand store offering customers “used books, new pickles.” As well as vinyl records and assorted antiques.
Leigh Altshuler is the brainchild behind the store, a veteran of both Strand Book Store and the McKittrick Hotel.
Sweet Pickle Books is open Tuesday through Sunday, 1:00pm to 7:00pm.
