Holiday Market 2015 Recap + Where to Find Your Favorite Vendors
Sometimes art doesn’t imitate life and it’s too bad because the winter wonderland we brought this year’s Greenpointers Holiday Market was so beautiful! Miss V put down her Mehndi tools for a few hours, picked up a can of blue spray paint, and revived her street art skills to create a dope backdrop decked out with hanging snowflakes, sprites, and a wintery landscape. The weather outside felt more like a brisk spring day but inside the gorgeous Greenpoint Loft, it was bustling with the holiday spirit and the smell of spices from our mulled wine wafted throughout.
As soon as doors opened, visitors came in waves and the entire space became alive with the merry sounds of conversations and movement. Music switched between Laura & Greg’s live performance and some old-timey tunes by V.M Home Recreations’ record player. The rooftop space was packed with people drinks in hand, enjoying the cityscape views of the water tower on the Greenpoint side and Manhattan landscape on the other. Inside on the mezzanine, people were lined up for photos at our photo booth, getting their tarot cards read, getting artfully done nails, or receiving bang trims. It was the perfect way to celebrate this time of year and this neighborhood. Thanks to everyone who made it out and helped make this market a huge success! Check out some photos of this year’s Holiday Market here.
We had more than double the amount of visitors and as a result, many vendors sold out of all or some of their items. We’ve been asked where to find them so we’ve compiled a (not-so-short) list for future reference (or last minute gifts) below:
