About us

Located on Main Avenue, Ocean Grove’s merchant area, Balzac & Co. welcomes visitors seven days a week to browse our fabulous collection of yarns, notions and patterns in-store. We regularly hold workshops and drop-in sessions for crochet and knitting, and you can also get hands-on with yarns from Neighborhood Fiber Co., LolaBean, tot la matin, Lady Dye Yarns, Soul Wool and Shibui Knits.

We are nestled between Osteria Procaccini for artisan pizza and sandwiches, and Odyssey Coffee (with delish pastries). Our neighbors also include Cheese on Main, Comfort Zone, Ocean Freeze, Ocean Grove Bake Shoppe, and many fine merchants and restaurants up the street. There’s plenty more creativity to explore along the avenue, so why not make a day of it? 

Balzac & Co. is just a two-minute walk from the beach, three minutes from the Great Auditorium, and a ten-minute walk from Asbury Park’s Cookman Avenue shops.

Come and say hi!
