For the past few weeks we have been posting about the designers and creators who will be selling at this year's Celebrate Brooklyn Festival in Prospect Park. Today is part 4. Celebrate Brooklyn! started Wednesday June 4th and is held in Prospect Park.
Did you arrive to the park carrying all of your supplies? Check out Bugged Out! They have the cutest and most unique tote bags perfect for NYC. A sturdy canvas tote with bug illustrations. New to the line this summer is the bedbug! Dina is the creator of Bugged Out, a line of screen printed whimsical bug, fruit, veggie and critter designs on organic cotton baby and kids clothing, tote bags and note cards. Bugged Out started with team T-shirts for Dina’s MS Walk team way back in 1998! All Bugged Out designs are developed in our NYC studio, and our products are screen printed by hand in our Long Island City, Queens print shop. A percentage of the proceeds from Bugged Out sales goes directly to Multiple Sclerosis research. We are excited to return to the Etsy NY shop at Celebrate Brooklyn for our 4th season! Check them out online at buggedout.etsy.com.
Did you forget to bring something to sit on for the concert? Stop by the EtsyNY booth and pick up a picnic blanket. traceytoole is a line of housewares focusing on picnic blankets, napkins and tea towels for this year’s Celebrate Brooklyn. The organic blankets will feature prints by the famous artist Charley Harper. Founded many years ago in Portland while working at Columbia Sportswear, she likes creating items that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Canvas, cotton wovens and yarndyes are some of her preferred fabrics to work with. Tracey is on the EtsyNY blog team and also writes her own blog, as well as teach sewing. Past times include painting, gardening, quilting and knitting. These hobbies influence her products thru color and mediums. Tracey's studio is in Park Slope. Tracey is a freelance designer and a new mom. This is her second year at Celebrate Brooklyn, after taking last summer off after having a baby. She enjoys Celebrate Brooklyn because it is outside and the audience is uniquely Brooklyn! Shop online at tracey's etsy shop.
Want to buy something uniquely Brooklyn and also learn a skill? DIY, do it yourself. Brooklyn DIY Supply creates prepackaged kits and supplies for busy adults to make homemade crafts and gifts. Founded by Bex and Elissa, they are two Brooklyn-based craftsters who live to make stuff and love to share what they've learned about making homemade consumables. From soap to pickles to cocktail bitters, they’ve taken the legwork out of DIY by providing you everything you need to make sensual, edible, or imbibe-able delights. They love what they do because they are first and foremost teachers, and they believe the world is a better place when you can create. This is their second year at Celebrate Brooklyn, where they love being part of the Etsy community. Pick up a new hobby at Celebrate Brooklyn this year with a kit from Brooklyn DIY Supply. Come to your next picnic with pickles, mustard or pretzels!
So next time you visit Celebrate Brooklyn! Pick yourself up a Bugged Out tote, grab a blanket to sit on and get a Brooklyn DIY kit for some crafting after the concert!
