This weekend is really a doozie for Indie Artists and Crafters around town with specail themed shopping days down in Brooklyn and free crafting workshops at the Etsy labs as well as the Flea, let's start with Saturday Oct 25
From 10am to 3pm, Etsy Labs is sponsoring a FREE - that's right, I said FREE - Sock Monkey making workshop. All Monkeys made will be donated to FreshArtNYC.org to be sold to fund their programs for special needs artists. You can RSVP for this FREE event by emailing RSVP@ETSY.COM. And you can meet some of your local neighborhood street team their crafting it for charity.
And also on Saturday - you can find CollectiveElements and ShutterKate at the Handmade Faire in Medford New Jersey from
10 am to 4pm looks to be great fun - with door prizes for shoppers and goodie bags and oh yeah 100 vendors! Sounds great!
Also on Saturday - from 11am to 7pm the Brooklyn Indie Market has dubbed it - Steam Punk day! Plan to be there for their 2pm fashion show - with a steampunk reading - victorian inspired refreshments (!) and victorian photo sitting. Get that corset out of the closet and slip into that petty coat and come on down.
If you don't already know - the Brooklyn Indie Market is a NYC emerging designer market each Saturday and Sunday at Smith at Union - under a nice bright white and red striped tent. I can't promise a corset - but I'll definitely be there on Saturday.
Well if that isn't enough to make, do, watch an buy there' still Sunday!!
This Sunday at our spot at the Brooklyn Flea - we'll have handmade jewelry from Yaniamor, handmade soap from NordeaSoaperie, monsters and plush toys, tees and buttons from KarensMonsters, sterling silver custom nameplate jewelry from CajaJewelry (*new seller with us!), handmade jewelry using vintage findings from AdornmentsNYC and handmade jewelry using colorful glass and brass from Jantar.
