Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
When: JUNE 3 – AUGUST 12
Where: AT THE PROSPECT PARK BANDSHELL (9th Street and Prospect Park Entrance)
Back for a fifth season, members of the Etsy New York Street Team will be partnering again with BRIC as the sole merchandise vendor for Celebrate Brooklyn! the premier outdoor summer festival concert series in Prospect Park. Seventeen vendors, from a variety of disciplines, will grant show attendees exclusive access to a carefully curated, all-handmade capsule market chock full of local goods, ALL SUMMER LONG!
Here is the SECOND of a four-part post showcasing but a small selection of the amazing products available this year:
Bugged Out is a line of screen-printed whimsical bug, fruit, veggie and critter designs on clothing, tote bags, note cards and accessories. All Bugged Out are screen-printed by us by hand in NYC. A percentage from Bugged Out sales goes directly to Multiple Sclerosis research.
Brooklyn Owl is an accessory company featuring unicorn and monster horns, whimsical hair clips, customizable headbands, party garlands, cake toppers, and the best denim bow ties in the world. Everything is handmade in New York City by Annie and her team of talented seamstresses.
A collaboration from the start based on their love of NYC and the need to make art. NYC Vinyl Dreams has created iconic images as well as the more unnoticed subjects of this great city. This year their canvas will be records. Nothing like the charm of an old record and now an even better way to display them.
We spoke with PJ: "My New York Neighborhoods start out as paintings on silk: I love the way it takes color in such a saturated way, which is perfect for reflecting the energy and vibrancy of the city I've called home. Painting in Union Square (I moved from London and Paris to the East Village) inspired me to capture my surroundings in living color, recreated as 3D art, canvas prints and art coasters."
In total there will be 17 designers and makers representing Etsy NY at Celebrate Brooklyn this summer. Check back for our other featured artists!
