Baby Is Not In A Corner at Our Spring Market (4/13)

No Cry Babies On Sunday!

When we first started these markets, there weren’t any baby vendors in site… oh how we have grown in just a few years. There will be plenty of cute baby stuff for your own little ones at our Spring Market this Sunday. If you aren’t preggers, I bet you know someone who is and we the have perfect baby shower gifts, plus we guarantee the market will be more fun than registry shopping at Babies R’ Us (shudder). See you Sunday!

Make sure to stop by these featured vendors:

body・face・hair Baby Wash by Limegreen – $8

Diet Cat Onesie by Haskieville Apparel – $18

Baby Pacifier Strings by Cheek-ie – $22

Organic Baby’s Bottom Balm by Sustainable Shanti – $8

Immerse your Child’s Imagination at Tumbleweeds Art Camp

(sponsored)

Tumbleweeds Art Campers Showing Off Their Creations

The closest I ever got to art at summer camp was making friendship bracelets. Art camp didn’t exist when I was a kid – oh the things I would have made!

Give your child the opportunity to make and learn about REAL art this summer at Tumbleweeds Art Camp, taught by local teaching artist Hayley Youngs.

Located at the beautiful Awakening NY wellness center, Tumbleweeds Art Camp will run for 3 weeks this July 2014 for children 4-8 years old.

Each day campers work on structured art projects with one-on-one attentions, plus free art time to find their inner Picasso. Painting, sculpture, printmaking, fiber art and recycled art are just some examples of what your child will be getting into. Snack time, lunchtime and outdoor playtime will take place nearby at the McCarren Park Playground.

Don’t wait. Summer camps fill up quickly in North Brooklyn.

To register email Hayley at tumbleweedsartgroup@gmail.com

For more information, visit Tumbleweeds’ Website.

Schedule and detailed camp information follows: Continue reading
