Brooklyn Craft Central has reached a pivotal point in its rising arc of market planning and scouring local handmaking genius: It's our 5TH BIRTHDAY! Yes, entering 5 years and BKCC's 11th shopping event since it's conception in December of 2008. Coming this holiday, we're pleased to announce our HOLIDAY MARKET 2012, spread over two December weekends for the first time ever - December 15 & 16 and December 22 & 23, returning to Littlefield in Park Slope/Gowanus.
Welcoming back past favorites and opening the door for brand new talent, Deb Klein (BKCC's founder and operator) and her team are working hard again this year to curate a stellar roster of vendors that New York and the region offers up each year in the way of handmade goods. Both weekends - the final two shopping weekends before Christmas - will feature a plethora of juried designers and products at pricepoints that will please everyone, no matter your budget. Helping shoppers who procrastinate (all of us!) find handmade values - and making it easy to keep out of the big box stores when the clock is ticking down; this is what BKCC does best and will continue doing for another 5 years.
Nate Duval (poster designer for bands like Wilco, Phish, Iron & Wine, Decemberists, Spoon, and countless others) delivers yet another stunning design to represent our running series. Littlefield is a warehouse-turned-club, built uber-sustainably with 6000 square feet of space and just 2 blocks from the R train on the Gowanus/Park Slope border. Littlefield will offer hot (and cold) drinks from the full bar, including weekend-long BKCC Market drink specials
COMING SOON: Partnership announcements, ongoing local promotions, food truck and vendor confirmations, and more..... STAY TUNED...
