Save the Date! April 24th is the Spring Handmade Cavalcade!


Shop Sustainably this Earth Day with the {New New} at the Spring Handmade Cavalcade.

 This spring, make eco-conscious shopping and gift-giving a part of your Earth Day tradition. Join the independent artists and makers of the {New New} at the second annual Spring Handmade Cavalcade, where local designers and makers will feature the best of their handmade collections.

Why Earth Day? Because {NewNew} member artists care about New York and its sustainability.  To reduce waste, {NewNew} member artists use little packaging, recycle and upcycle materials, and create and sell locally.  At the Spring Handmade Cavalcade, you will find a variety of these sustainable goods including housewares made from post-consumer waste, jewelry made with recycled metals, and much, much more.


The Spring Handmade Cavalcade will take place on April 24th, from 10am - 5pm at Berry Park, 4 Berry Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Be among the first 100 people to arrive and receive a free, limited-edition goody bag full of wonderful eco-inspired giveaways.

{New New} ECO TIP #1 - When shopping, skip the plastic bag and use a tote bag instead.  You can make your own tote bag using an old t-shirt.  For this and other DIY tips on how to recycle, upcycle and reuse items to create new treasures and live more sustainably, come back for more tips and ideas!



The Spring Handmade Cavalcade is proudly sponsored by Etsy, Lion Brand Yarn, and Swap-Bot.

A {NewNew} vendor eco-story from:
Groundsel refashions unloved textiles and plastics to infuse them with a different identity. Her products include recycled tie bags, fused plastic purses, and felted sweater bags and accessories.  This year, Groundsel is excited to introduce embellished messenger bags made out of recycled cotton.
