Featured Vendor: NY CLOCKS

Our featured vendor New York Clocks makes fun clocks from recycled items like this tea canister shown and book covers and postcards . This year the shop is also featuring key ring holds.

Andria Alefhi started New York Clocks because she said she “wanted to make a clock from a pop tarts box and it just went from there.”

Her bestseller is the tea tin clock and she said that she thinks that her customers love them  because of the nostalgia. “I’ve had customers tell me great stories about why they were buying a particular flavor of tea for a special person in their lives, and it’s awesome.
