Etsy NY Back at Celebrate Brooklyn! with Vibrant Offerings of NYC’s Handmade Best
Back for a fourth season, the Etsy New York Street Team, part of the world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace, will be partnering again with BRIC as the sole merchandise vendor for its Celebrate Brooklyn! concert series in Prospect Park.
From June 4th through August 9, amongst the dynamic array of music and performing arts at the Prospect Park Bandshell, the Etsy New York Street Team will be providing attendees with a highly-curated, down-to-earth, pop-up shop chock full of handmade goods being sold on-site by their makers. Come in and talk shop with any one of the artisans working to learn about the various techniques that go into producing their wares.
Included this year amongst the offerings are earthy gemstone, graceful enamel, edgy geode and animal-inspired, etched jewelry pieces, along with many elegant and practical reclaimed and eco-friendly houseware items. Also featured are screen-printed t-shirts, whimsical children’s clothing and accessories (unicorn horns!) along with plush toys. In addition, the shop will feature all-natural skincare, cool and easy DIY kits, giclee prints, greeting cards, hand-sewn picnic blankets and linens, as well as so many completely unique, NYC and subway-inspired accessories and wall art that nobody visiting one of the terrific events at Celebrate Brooklyn! this summer will want to go home without scooping up at least one of these carefully-crafted and locally-made goodies as a souvenir to mark the experience.
For the next few weeks we will be featuring the 18 artists who will be selling at Celebrate Brooklyn! 2014 so keep checking in with us!
About Celebrate Brooklyn!
In its 35th season, Celebrate Brooklyn! is one of New York City’s longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals. Launched in 1979 as a catalyst for a Brooklyn performing arts scene and to bring people back into Prospect Park after years of neglect, Celebrate Brooklyn! was an early anchor in the park’s revitalization. Over its history, the festival has presented over 2,000 artists and ensembles reflective of the borough’s diversity. Most Celebrate Brooklyn! performances are free!
