The Brooklyn Lyceum Holiday Craft Market


by Lorina of The Original Beadscarf

Whether you made it to the epic signature event “Holiday Handmade Cavalcade” or not last weekend, has the {NewNew} got something for you! This weekend, the historic location of The Brooklyn Lyceum will host a Holiday Craft Market featuring over 60 handmade vendors, many of which will be some of your favorite {NewNew} crafters. So have no fear if you couldn’t make it to last week’s event, here’s your chance to meet your favorite local crafters!

This coming weekend, December 20th and 21st, from 11am to 7pm you will have a chance to do your last minute shopping at The Brooklyn Lyceum, located at 227 4th Ave, between President St. and Union St., in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Just take the R train to Union St. and it will be right there when you emerge at the stop.

The Brooklyn Lyceum has a colorful history dating back nearly 100 years ago as a 1910 public bathhouse. It has since converted to a theatre space hosting a variety of entertainment for the entire family. The location also offers a relaxing café.

The Holiday Craft Market taking place this entire weekend will not only have local vendors selling everything from unusual handmade accessories for the home, body and other accoutrements which make gift giving easy, but also DJ’s, food and drink specials. The indoor space will provide just the right atmosphere to wrap up some serious last minute holiday shopping. There will also be a super special promotion in which $100 worth of purchases will get you a pair of tickets to one of the Brooklyn Lyceum’s many productions!

On behalf of the {NewNew}, I look forward to seeing you there!
