Summers in Greenpoint call for outdoor revelry and picnics so we’re bringing both to the upcoming Summer Market because did you know that Greenpoint Loft has an amazing rooftop space with views of the Manhattan Skyline and the East River? Plus, illustrator Libby VanderPloeg is hand drawing a Garden Variety Watermelon Patch for a picnic themed photobooth manned by Gustavo Ponce! Your handsome mugs will come alive like living art as they did in the last market.

RSVP for Sunday, July 19th from 1-7PM at the Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Fl).

There will be FREE Activities, Craft Beer and Refreshments, Local Shopping, and Music:

GreenpointLoft_Rooftop_View_275pxRooftop Yoga: Is there a better way to get your urban zen on? Visitors have enjoyed Greenpoint Loft’s outdoor section for its views but we thought we should take advantage of the weather by inviting Hosh Yoga to host a donation-based yoga class there.

Henna Tattoos: Ohm your way over to Miss V, who will get her demons out by doling out some Henna Tattoos. Continue reading

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?

Helderberg Escarpment via Wiki

The story behind Bacon Handmade Neckwear – a featured Valentine’s Market vendor – is truly a love story – with a side of bacon. Based in a little update NY village named Altamont, surrounded by fruit orchards, farms and the Helderberg Escarpment – a 700 ft cliff face overlooking the Hudson Valley – Bacon designer Jessyka Neitzel described these natural wonders as “tall, dark and handsome.” Continue reading

Featured Vendor: Brooklyn Craft Coop

During the holidays, we are in such a rush doing a million things at once, that often the easiest route for holiday decorating is mass produced store bought junk that sooner or later ends up in a landfill. Not only did I love how unique Brooklyn Craft Coop’s decorations are like the Violet Paper Star Garland pictured, but they are so special you will want to decorate with them year after year.

Lindsay, Susan and Sharon are the the ladies behind Brooklyn Craft Coop, a featured vendor at our Holiday Market and Sharon chatted with us about how the three came together to get crafty and their love of sustainable crafting and Greenpoint.  Continue reading

Featured Vendor: Type A Fibers

Amy Wilson taught herself how to spin wool as a way to unwind and unplug from the stresses of urban life. It soon became more than just a hobby, and a few years later, she runs a successful Etsy shop, Type A Fibers, and sells her homespun yarns at local markets.

When you think about spinning, you might picture a bonnet-wearing woman on the porch of a farm house somewhere in rolling country hills. But Amy’s yarn is unmistakably cool, and very much a product of her home. It’s an art form that she has crafted locally and creatively– a process that inspires us to think about where and how our clothes are made. Continue reading

Featured Vendor: Bombay Mermaid Trading Co.

At Greenpointers everything is an excuse to have a party – even just getting dressed in the morning – which is why we love Bombay Mermaid Trading Co., featuring bright and colorful handmade and vintage product at the Fall Market on 10/12.

Founder Michelle Christina has been a vendor with us for years and it is exciting to see her skills and vision continue to grow and develop into her own amazing brand.

 

GP: Love the name Michelle! How did you come up with it?

Michelle: “Mermaid” calls to mind the stuff of legends, shimmering fins, the freedom of swimming from one sea to the next, and looong hair. When I was little, I wanted to be a mermaid. I even learned to swim like one! Continue reading
