Our Holiday Market Is Over but Winter Candyland Lives On In Our Photo Booth!

Our Winter Holiday market is over but Candyland lives on in our photo booth! We had so much fun and hope that everyone keeps on riding that sugary high for the rest of the holidays. To recap, it was a blast last Sunday, with all that hot buttered rum, free tarot and henna, and many of our vendors selling out.

Remember that dope candyland themed photo booth we had up in the mezzanine? We finally had a chance to go through the photos, and you all look super sweet. Thanks to local artist Colleen Blackard for making our Candyland come alive and Been Shirai for getting all these great shots! Check out the full album of photos on Facebook, and don’t forget to tag yourself!

From Sold-Out Vendors to Cute Fur Friends and Toasty Warm Vibes, Our Holiday Market was a Candy Covered Hit!

It’s hard to believe it was only this Sunday we were toasty warm, sipping hot buttered rum (which some of you compared to Harry Potter’s Butterbeer it was so good) in the Grenpoint Loft. Now it’s freezing – guess winter was waiting for our Candyland creation to pass!

Let’s take a moment to relive the sugary sweet fun though, shall we? This year’s Greenpointers Holiday Market was a candy covered hit, many of our more than 60 vendors reporting it to be their busiest year yet, with 4,000+ visitors in all. This author gave over 100 tarot readings, Miss V. adorned tens of hands with stunning henna tattoos, Capture Me in 3D created many a digital avatar, [email protected] gave tons of massages, all for free, and that’s just what happened in the balcony!

Meanwhile, downstairs, the Big Cat Menagerie played old-timey tunes, Champion Coffee made sure everyone was properly caffeinated handing out their roast, Local gave out brie samples with their jams and jellies, and Morphologically kept the vibes right burning palo Santo sticks. The whole space was filled with local vendors selling everything from custom illustrations, knitwear, jewelry, handmade skincare, culinary and home gifts to clothing and beyond. Many vendors totally sold out of their wares, but don’t worry if you got to their tables too late – plenty of them have brick & mortar shops or online stores that are still stocked. Stay tuned for another post about where to find them next!

In all, the market was a great success, and we couldn’t have done it without you. See you in February 11th for our Valentine’s Market!
