Shop Local: Friends Don’t Let Friends Gift From Chain Stores!
Why stand in line for ordinary mass-produced items when you can find meaningful and unique gifts for your most valuable friends and family this holiday season?
Neighborhood fitness and wellness studio, [email protected] (31 Nassau Ave) brings the best of holiday shopping to their beautiful studio space located steps from McCarren Park on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Sustainable Sunday.
The market will run from 12-8 pm each day, and will feature fun activities including tarot card readings and other surprises.
Rossana Ines Rossi of Victory Plant Medicine will be hosting a Holiday Bitters Gift Making Workshop on Sunday, December 1st, at 2 pm. Under Rossana’s guidance, attendees will mix and experiment with their own flavor combinations, and each guest will take home a gift set of three small bottles of their own individually mixed bitters. Sign up here for the bitters workshop before early bird pricing is gone!
A specialty cocktail featuring Rossana’s own bitters will be featured next door at Spritzenhaus throughout the day for market attendees exclusively, creating a true block party.
Local artisans and vendors will also bring sustainable handmade pieces throughout the three-day display of unique goods.
Designers include JWhite, whose sustainable line has been fully displayed on the [email protected] walls since the Grand Rebrand this summer, Hatzumomo, Anona Concentric Adornments, Teas of the Valley, Transitions By Truth, GrandMother Goods, Sacred Lotus Yoni Steams, Shino NYC, and more.
“As a fitness and wellness studio, our goal is to empower our members in their fitness & wellness goals and we carry that message through to empowering the hand-picked local vendors we have on display in our space,” owner Dishan Elise said. “There is a huge need to direct our buying power toward vendors and goods that support sustainable practices.”
