Spring is here and I love it! The weather cool at night warm to hot in the day. This is my kind of weather. And with great weather comes street fairs. There are always quite a few every weekend in New York City. As a maker I do participate in a few. This weekend will be my first fair for the the summer season. Clear view Cinemas also runs street fairs. This Saturday, May 30th, they will be holding a street fair on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan. However, they have contacted Etsy and have created an Etsy Block. When I first heard this I was so excited! Usually street fairs can sell a lot of undesirable stuff, cheap tee shirts, bad socks, etc... Etsy will be covering streets 75th and 76th on 3rd Ave. The fair itself will be from 66th to 86th Street.
I've been a busy bee working on picnic blankets, napkins, aprons and tea towels.
Here are a few shots of my wips. (works in progress)
Most of these items are in my etsy shop but those one of the kind items usually are exclusive to markets.
June 6, Saturday is the Etsy Craft Fair in the Dumbo section of Brooklyn. Since 2010, Etsy has hosted a Craft Party, a global celebration of making and meeting, creativity and community. For the first time at the headquarters which is in Brooklyn, they will be selling locally made goods. Etsy NY team members were given the opportunity to apply. I applied and was accepted! Very excited about this. Such a great opportunity for me. So come craft, create, meet and shop!
And all summer long traceytoole products will be in the EtsyNY booth at Celebrate Brooklyn. This is the third season and it's such a fantastic venue! Music, movies and art. Some are free and some are benefit concerts.
Hope to see you this summer!
