Greenpointers Holiday Market 2012 Recap & Photo Booth!
Saturday’s Holiday Market was our biggest and best market yet! Thanks to everyone who made it such a wonderful and festive day! It was truly magical and it was great to see everyone from the neighborhood supporting local makers.
I want to mention the creative contributions from amazing friends and family. Rocco, my dad, was making everyone laugh and taking great photos. The macramé tree background in the photo booth was created from necklaces that my grandfather made in the 70s. The installation on the back wall was created by my best friend Julie, and all the yarn was repurposed from a huge bin I found in Nonna’s garage. Plus, the afghan on which I presented the Greenpoint Photo Book was crocheted by my great grandmother. It’s all very special and multi-generational.
