Holiday Market 2015 Recap + Where to Find Your Favorite Vendors

HolidayMarket15

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.

Transform old furniture into something fresh!
Transforming furniture is one of the things we love to do the most at Suite Pieces (located at 162 Huron Street)! We’re going to share with you how fun and easy it is to change the look of something you already own without the hassle of sanding and priming. We’ll be using one of our favorite product lines that we offer in the shop, Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan.

Make LIC Flea & Food Part Of Your Labor Day Weekend

(Sponsored)

Add the LIC Flea & Food to your Labor Day Weekend staycation plans and get a taste of what Metro New York has dubbed the #1 Market in NYC and what HGTV considered a market worth featuring in a recent episode of “Flea Market Flip.”

Located at 5-25 46th Avenue, right off 46th Avenue and 5th Street, on the waterfront and full of a carefully curated selection of food, antiques, furniture, jewelry, vintage clothing, collectibles and much more from “some of the most unique vendors on the planet,” the market is fun on any weekend, but will be especially exciting this August 31 and September 1, when there will be ping pong, a live DJ, and games for both the kids and adults in the family.

Right next door is also the newly opened Hunter’s Point South Waterfront Park, which is 17.5 acres of gorgeous  views and lawn, a playground, pavilion and waterfront promenade—perfect for picnicking. The East River Ferry lands right into this new park and is one stop from Greenpoint.

On Sundays, there are free bike valets courtesy of Recycle-A-Bike, so grab your bike and ride across the Pulaski Bridge or hop on the East River Ferry to LIC/Hunts Point terminal. LIC Flea is also easily accessible by the 7-E-M subway lines.

The LIC Flea is open Saturdays and Sundays through October, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

For more info on special events and new vendors, sign up for the LIC Flea e-newsletter at LICFlea.com and follow them on Facebook and Twitter @licflea.
