Greenpointers Fall Market Recap!

Thanks for coming out to our Fall Market this past Saturday to support local shopping, artists and craftsmanship! It was such a wonderful day and we had such a blast.

Thanks to all our talented vendors who worked so hard to bring their beautiful work for all of us to enjoy. Thanks to our sponsors Brooklyn Brewery, Sailor Jerry and Cafe Grumpy for providing the refreshments. We especially enjoyed the empanadas from Cafecito Bogota and sweet treats from Ovenly.  Thanks to Marofoto and Yucca for the great photos and to Yana and Jon for working tirelessly to make it all happen. Thanks to From the Source for providing the space.

This photo pretty much sums up the awesomeness of our market this past Saturday!

Check out the rest of the photos on Greenpointers’ Facebook.

Stay tuned for announcements for our Holiday Market, which is right around the corner!!!

Featured Vendor: Dinosaurus

I was personally very upset when I discovered Dinosaurus. Their awesome dinosaur hoodies remind me of my nerdy childhood days at the Natural History Museum where I nicknamed my favorite Brontosaurus “Joshua” and we remained long time friends (until I hit 4th grade and realized it was weird to talk to an animatronic dinosaur). The point is, I’m upset that these hoodies didn’t exist in the 80s.  Because I would have rocked them.

The good news is, it’s not too late for the little people (kids)! With Halloween right around the corner, the timing could not be better. We’re thrilled to have Dinosaurus as a vendor at this year’s Fall Market on 10/12.

In preparation, we asked founder, Alexander Perrelli, to give us the inside scoop. Continue reading

Greenpoint Shopping Roundup: Best of Home Spring 2013

This article made possible by a donation to our Writer’s Fund by Paulie Gee.

Photos by Jaclyn L

Spring is in the air! Birds are chirping, coats are coming off, and we’re all dreading the necessary (yet evil!) spring cleaning. Instead of going full-throttle into organization mode, how about buying something to give your apartment that much-needed facelift? Our local shops have plenty of home decor options at a variety of price points that are sure to help your abode get out of it’s winter rut. And now that it’s warm enough to paint outside, try investing in a fixer upper/game changer that just needs a little TLC. (Try not to use aerosol paint.)

Valentine’s Market 2013 Recap & Photos!

While we were spray painting beer bottles in a blizzard to adorn the back wall of From The Source for our Valentine’s Market on Saturday, I said to the crew, “it doesn’t matter how it looks, nobody is going to see it anyway.” So much for encouragement and optimism!

Our vendors fought the snow and ice and set up their lovely tables and just as noon struck the sun came out and all our wonderful Greenpointers friends miraculously showed up for a truly magical day.

Also, our raffle raised over $500 for our Writer’s Fund! Thanks to all who bought tickets and to the great businesses who donated prizes!

Check out more photos and of course, the photo booth photos!

Thanks to all our vendors, From The SourceBrooklyn BreweryBoylan Bottling CoDandelion WineCafe GrumpyKRRBPie Corps, all our amazing volunteers, Kelly & FallonJ.Hollis Styles, Marofoto and Victoria for putting it all together!
