Rare, Fare & Objects of Desire

continuum-fashion-printed-tiesCool hunters and market mavens don't let the weather fool them. These are the days of market debuts and mysteries revealed and a whole new crop of sellers are proof positive that cool lives here in Williamsburg at the market. Continuum Fashion blurs the lines between digital and fashion by creating 3D printed jewelry and digitally inspired clothing designs (see photo). Call it craft for the digital age.

What happens when you've got 26 years and 7000 square feet worth of antiques from Pennsylvania and beyond and you bring them to Brooklyn? This is not for the faint of heart and Crown Antiques represents with a bounty of merch for the home and closet. Highlights include: never-worn Western riding wear, vintage Apache, Hopi, Navajo, and American Indian wall hangings, vintage Pendelton blankets and an antique collection of Zippo lighters and Art Deco decals perfect for restaurant, store and home decor. Dang, that's a haul!

It's Summer in Rio and designer Vanessa Avellar brings a taste of Brazilian style to Brooklyn with her 2013 collection of leather shoes and bags including her signature red-tipped heel pump. So radically Rio!

Jewels and bags are back in January. This weekend marks the return of Fall fan favorites QF Trading (aka Alyxia Leaf) with their gold-dipped leaf-inspired jewelry and accessories and the debut of Pam Older Designs, handmade jewelry in silver in gold inspired by nature and at home in the urban jungle. Doray Unlimited brings handmade leather handbags to the market, the perfect pick-me-up-and-fill-up accessory for the new neighborhood set.

Finally, after some months in the planning, local food dude on the scene and the man behind the wildly fun and famous Brooklynauts food take-downs, Charlie Mirisola, debuts his newest venture: Painted Lady Fare. We will remain reserved in our enthusiasm but the market is sure to embrace this new food hook-up at the market and on the Northside of the nabe. Check their website for new menu additions throughout the week!
