We are considered one of the best places to shop and one of Prospect Heights, (now in Crown Heights and Dumbo, Brooklyn) best kept secret.
Walking into CALABAR IMPORTS is like taking a tour of the world. Heloise and Atim have opened a jewel of a store in Prospect Heights – with treasures and gifts from all over the world. Great shop. Nice people. Good Shopping. - Carol Morrison, neighbor/resident, Propect Heights
Calabar Imports! Thank you for carrying such a great “hard to find” item! I appreciate the prompt response to my phone inquiry and will definitely suggest you to my friends! - Sincerely – Monica Anderson
Color, Texture, Design, Dream windows to an African world. Calabar Imports brings the best of the African Diaspora to Prospect Heights - Patricia Spear Jones, Poet, Brooklyn
My favorite thing about CALABAR (IMPORTS) is you never know what to expect. I stop in the store just to see what new things have arrived or the new store arrangement, or fresh window dressing. I have my eye on this drum, I hope it’s still there, but if it’s not I know I will always find something that I want even if it’s not something I need. - Trevor Brown, designer, Prospect Heights

I wandered in, searching for a Birthday present for a good friend and co-worker; I also figured after living nearby for over a year, I’m long overdue for checking this place out. I liked it a lot! Incense, soaps, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, journals, leather and metal goods, dresses and more. A great place for reasonably priced, one of a kind gifts, imported from Asia, Africa and South America.– Melissa M.; Brooklyn, NY
