Greenpointers Markets Update – Save the Date – Holiday Market 12/7

I know it’s a ways off, but we have been getting a lot of requests about our upcoming markets – so here is the deal:

Due to unavailability of the space, we will NOT be having a FALL Market this year. 

Greenpointers Holiday Market is scheduled for 12/7/14 – so please mark you calendar and vendors apply here.

Expect applications to be accepted late October / early November. Due to increasing expenses tables prices have gone up, but we are bringing half table shares and 8ft tables back! Our table fees are still very affordable compared to other local markets and we want to continue to keep it that way. Thanks for your understanding!

Can’t wait to see you in December!

Featured Vendor: Birdy27

Have we mentioned that we love knits? We talked to Alicia of Birdy27 about her hand-made hats, scarves, and ear warmers for a little preview of what she’ll bringing to the Holiday market tomorrow!

GP: What inspired you to start Birdy27?

Alicia: I am just one big ball of creativity!  When I started thinking about starting a business, I began creating slogans for t-shirts and that jibed with my writing background. However, when I was a young girl, my mom taught me to sew, knit, and crochet. So when I decided to expand my business beyond tees, I went back to my background and family traditions. When I offer handmade items, I feel as if I am honoring my mom and grandmother. And my mom is proud of me, too. Continue reading

Featured Vendor: Peacock & Pineapples

Winter is upon us and you know what that means– it’s time to cozy up in our favorite hand-knit scarves and hats.

Peacock & Pineapples is just the place to satisfy all of those seasonal knit-wear needs.

We chatted with Suzanne, our fellow Greenpointer, who creates these comfy, yet stylish, winter looks.

GP: How did you learn to make these beautiful knit creations?

Suzanne: I learned how to knit in 2003 while living in remote town in eastern Washington State. My Grandmother had always knit, and it proved to be a good way for us to spend time together when I came back to New York and began visiting her in a nursing home. She had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a couple of years prior, but, as with all patients with memory loss, she retained the knowledge of the things learned in her youth. Continue reading
