|No kittens! No 5 socks for the price of 1 packs! No sweet floral prints or hand painted flower pots! |
This is a craft fair for those who like neon, typography and ironic t-shirts. LOVE IT!
One thing I noticed right away is that the vendors seemed a little... underwhelmed by the crowd?
I personally went 3 times on sunday and I saw a lot of people looking but few actually buying.
I think many of the price points where high even for NYC.
That may have been an issue for the usually broke Brooklyn Hipster crowd.
I'd like to think it's because "we" spend our money on sky high rent but every day I pass crowded bars selling 10 dollar pints of "craft beer" so lets be real.
Most Brooklyn Hipsters have other priorities.
|This pair had me pulling out my wallet- $275 for him $250 for her so I had to leave them at |
their stall- so very sorry nonetheless.
The Art & Craft of Mimi Kirchner
This Chicago based artisan made beautifully rendered NYC photos transfered onto wood blocks.
|HA! Thanks Gowanusprintlab.com! I even signed up for a class. (woo hoo!)|
I've wanted to make my own Brooklyn themed pillows for years!
|The weather was gorgeous but the sun was so bright it felt great to be inside the |
booth messing with paint. I am positively hooked!!!
|Peebeo was there with lots of paint, Ed Roth Stencils (LOVE!) and ceramic squares|
for you to make your own wall decoration.
Mine broke on the concrete floor- and I can't even blame Ms.Lola for it. (waaaah!!!)
|So I didn't get the name of this artist- those are hand cut modern paper lace designs making up a map of Brooklyn. TOO FABULOUS!! I didn't do anything but DROOL after her gorgeous creations.|
I don't think Williamsburg, Brooklyn is a good place for this type of event right now.
A lot of the people here are young and struggling through the economic downturn.
Or maybe everyone just needed more time to learn the fair was being held inside the park?
I wanted to run and buy something from each stall- not a healthy mindset for someone so broke.
