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.)

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!
Thanks to all our vendors, From The Source, Brooklyn Brewery, Boylan Bottling Co, Dandelion Wine, Cafe Grumpy, KRRB, Pie Corps, all our amazing volunteers, Kelly & Fallon, J.Hollis Styles, Marofoto and Victoria for putting it all together!

From The Source has a location in Chelsea but their warehouse is right here in Greenpoint and at 35,000 sq ft, you’ll find something to inspire you!
I love these horses! How spectacular are these?! And they’re just $20. You can have a whole stable of ‘em!
It’s gotten colder, and as guests stream in, you may be wondering where to put all those winter layers and wraps. Not to worry, the branches of our Wild Coat Tree stand ready to receive. No need to get out the ornaments, just hang your jackets and scarves and enjoy the party! Isabeau over at Worksong Chinese Medicine on Franklin has one & it feels so well suited to her always tranquil space. Wild Coat Tree $350.
