Crafts in Chelsea

What are you doing this weekend? Nothing? Great, because Crafts in Chelsea is THIS Saturday and I knowww you haven’t started your holiday shopping – yet. =)

What is Crafts in Chelsea you may ask? Another tube sock fair? Imported pashminas? Not even close. It’s only THE best handmade fair of the Fall put on by Etsy New York (and hey, it benefits PS 11 = even more awesome).

We’re shutting down 21st St. (between 8th and 9th Ave) and filling it with a curated lineup of the best in handmade.  Over 100 handmade artists and delicious food vendors from all over the New York area (including yours truly) will be there with their latest collections for the Fall/Winter season.  Simply a perrrfect jump start to the holiday shopping season while the weather is still lovely and Fall-like for a good ol’ Saturday stroll.  And PS – Buying local and handmade makes you feel good by helping support small biz (and NY public schools) aaand ensures there will be no duplicate gift under the tree. Umm…win win? I think yes.

So what are the deets?

When?: Saturday, October 20th from 11am to 4pm

Where?: NYC (artsy ‘nabe Chelsea to be exact) on 21st St (btwn 8th & 9th Avenues)

How do I get there?: Subway*: 1 train to 7th Ave or C/E to 8th Ave; OR via the 23rd St Crosstown bus to 8th Ave

Have a great Friday and we’ll see you there!

Music Monday for Dad

This week is a BIG one as we’re getting ready for Crafts in Chelsea this Saturday.  I’m buried under piles of vintage fabric for new laptop and iPad sleeves as well as silk screens for our new vintage modern city pillows (debuting @ CiC!). More to come on that!

However, this Music Monday brings me back to my childhood and our living room song and dance sessions. I’ve selected one of my dad’s favorites, in honor of him reminding me, “You’re my daughter. We don’t quit. We Keep. On. PUSHING.” So dad, I’m listening and firing on all cylinders.

I hope you have someone in your life that positively inspires you to keep striving towards your goals and going after what you love.  While I haven’t always had the support in all the decisions I’ve made, I’m very grateful today for my dad’s words of support and encouragement.  So here’s to those people in your life that remind you to never give up and keep. on. pushing. Thanks dad.
