Avocado Love with Harp & Thistle Stitchery

Avocado by Harp & Thistle Stitchery

We all have love affairs with food so don’t judge Erin Flanagan of Harp & Thistle Stitchery for loving up on an avocado. It’s not like that.

Why the obsession with avocados, so much so that she intricately stitches them with heart pits?

Featured Vendor: Utopia Bath LTD

A single bar of soap on Etsy sparked Merilyn Konnerth’s imagination after her design company closed in as a result of the 2008 Economic Crash. She submersed herself into the soap making process and in 2010 launched Utopia Bath, Ltd, a featured vendor participating in our Holiday Market.

This isn’t the end of the story. Merilyn told us that two weeks after she launched her new business she was diagnosed with breast cancer and needed to formulate gentle lotions and creams to sooth her skin, which was suffering from the effects of chemotherapy.

“Interestingly enough, I’m from three generations of Chemists, so formulating comes naturally to me,” she said.

Featured Vendor: Of The Dark Star & Mogz

We’re super excited to be hosting gorgeous hand-dyed clothes from Of The Dark Star at this year’s Holiday Market. And since, you’ll be dressed to impress, why not give your animal friend the same treatment with pet outfits from Mogz?

Greenpointers Neon Sign Documentary

You may have noticed that we revamped our logo into a Neon font. It was all in preparation for an amazing project that I want to tell you about – Greenpointers Neon Sign Documentary.

It all started when we realized that our sign sucks…

We decided to get a badass NEON sign, which we can take to all of our events and markets, a sign that reflects who we are and what we believe in – local MADE IN NYC craftsmanship – and of course document the process from start to finish with the direction of the talented Miguel A. Rodriguez (my best friend in the entire world!)

Our Neon Sign Documentary will star Robbie Ingui of Artistic Neon, a 2nd generation Neon Sign Maker. This guy is super talented, hilarious and has thee best NY accent ever! Not only will we film him making our sign and teaching us about the process, but we will also interview his father (in upstate NY) and Thomas Rinaldi, who wrote the amazing book New York Neon to learn about the history of Neon Sign Making and how it has created a unique visual landscape here for the past 100 years.

If you think this project rules, then please consider making a donation to our Kickstarter Fundraiser, which launches today and ends on 11/10/2013.

Our goal is to raise $3000 to create this short documentary and there are many awesome rewards for funding – including rice balls.

For more info, check out our Greenpointers Neon Sign Documentary Kickstarter page AND thanks in advance for your support!
