Felted Soap by NordeaSoaperie

Every weekend there are many markets all over NYC where artisans are selling everything from an elegant purse made from a recycled men's suit to laser cut wooden coasters. Take a chance this weekend and try shopping for something unusual. Instead of getting your soap at the local Duane Reade, head to the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene and try Nordea Soaperie's cerveza con lima body bar. And rather than swinging by SoHo for a spring dress, take a trip to the Brooklyn Indie Market to try on flirty, chic skirts by Fofolle.

Let your shopping choices make a statement about you! The {NewNew} aims to always bring you the best handmade options out there. Check them out at the following venues this weekend!
