Why Christmas? Because July

This past weekend, we hosted our first-ever market-wide Christmas in July! Across the country in New York and Los Angeles, shoppers braved the blistering heat to cool down Artists & Fleas style, featuring holiday-appropriate discounts, ugly Christmas sweaters, free beer and more. Check out photos and recaps below, and head over to our Facebook album to view even more pics from the event.

Chelsea Market

Punk-rock Santa, shouty-cones and prize wheels! Christmas in July at Chelsea Market was a sight to see in the Meatpacking District. The Big Brooklyn Holiday Toy Drive brought their prize wheel and beer was generously provided on Sunday by Sixpoint 

Williamsburg

Jacinda Claus was in the house all weekend for photos and merriment, bringing joy and laughter throughout the market and to the photo booth set up by Big Brooklyn Holiday Toy Drive, and beer was flowing on Sunday courtesy of our friends at Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co.  

Los Angeles

In addition to an adoption event with Mixed Mutts Rescue and Found Animals, our Los Angeles market hosted a toiletries drive at the Cattle Headquarters booth that benefitted the homeless, a local women's shelter, and the Hollywood Youth LGBT shelter. Santa was present for photo ops and all those who donated were given the chance to spin a prize wheel!
