Last night I wandered my way over to the newly established “Holiday Bizaar,” a wholly unique space that calls itself a “hybrid gallery, shop, event space, and studio” located on 82 Oak St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Currently it is a large room displaying curios, artworks, natural articles, cans, and clothing that is all for sale and leisurely observing.
What’s cool about this new place is the how open to ideas the creators are. If you have something you would like to sell in the space, please feel free to email the Holiday Bizaar (firstname.lastname@example.org). They are also doing a take on the traditional holiday can drive. Having a set of cans as part of an art instillation, visitors to the space are asked buy a can coloring card (for $1) and add it next to the piece. They then plan to donate the cans to the Greenpoint Reform Church on Milton St.
It seems that the Holiday Bizaar is to be an awesome new destination spot, constantly evolving and completely accepting to your ideas. They are open to customers/visitors Wednesday – Sunday, 1 pm to 8 pm from now until December 24th. As the space plans to constantly evolve, I would recommend stopping several times from now until the 24th during their moment on Oak Street.
82 Oak St. (between Franklin St. and West St.)
Open Wed. – Sun. 1 pm to 8 pm
Nov. 17th to Dec. 24th
