Massages, Prose, Live Jazz & Cupid Are for Friends and Lovers: Join Our Old-Timey Valentine’s Market (Sun, 2/12)
Shake off your lonesome winter blues and get your crafting scissors ready, because you never know what manner of comely suitors await deserving of your best handmade Valentine at ye Old-Timey Valentine’s Market on Sunday, February 12 (1-7PM). RSVP here!
We will be bringing it back to a rosy, nostalgia-tinged time of yore. Our annual Valentine’s Market will be held at the Greenpoint Loft (67 West St), once the home of the largest rope manufacturer in the U.S. and now beautifully restored to its pre-war glory.
Whether you’re single, attached, or can’t really say, come imbibe Prohibition-era cocktails and vintage jazz tunes — or just mix and mingle as you shop for yourself, your friends, or your beloved.
As always, we’ll be offering plenty of free, fun activities in addition to a judiciously selected panel of amazing local vendors.
There’ll be face painting, nail art, and personalized stories by The Roving Typist, who can often be seen around New York City, writing on command for the masses. You could also just come get massaged by [email protected] if your back is hurting from all the shopping.
If you’re curious about what the future holds, we’ll have tarot and (free!) astrology readings upstairs. If the future gives you anxiety, you could also stop by The Daily Hunch’s table for a complimentary Valentine’s-themed cue card full of astrological pickup lines.
As always, we’ll have a photo booth in full swing too: think giant paper cut-outs, crafty roses, and old-timey chandeliers. Check out our Street Love photo booth photos from our last Valentine’s Market.
Don’t forget to stop by the bar for a Prohibition-era Bee’s Knee’s cocktail made with Brooklyn Gin. Palinkerie will also be providing a delicious assortment of Hungarian wine, and Greenpoint Beer & Ale will have all hands on deck as well (or at least enough hands to provide two different kinds of beers).
Jazz trio Andrew’s Tiger will be regaling the masses with their instruments. Swing dancers welcome!
And just in case you thought this was all hearts and roses, a few members of the Women’s March NYC Chapter will swing by with postcards and art — proceeds will go toward the cause.
Lastly, never fear, because Cupid is here. Check him out at the last Valentine’s market!
Special thanks to our sponsors!
