By most accounts, Memorial Day kinda just sneaked up on us. So if you're hunting for what to bring to your beer-and-BBQ-infused weekend, the hook ups are separated by a river and a subway ride (7 minutes door to door by yesterday's count).
In Williamsburg, Liar Liar (pictured above) is Jeannine Ortiz's soul-bearing art project and passion of upcycled, recycled and the occasional random musing turned into something you can put in your bag. Whether it's artsy throwback cassette tapes, riffs on Modest Mouse or anyone of a myriad of doo-dads, it's like raiding the secret passages inside an art student's mind. Crack it open, peek inside. Saturday & Sunday
Sensory overload knows no bounds with Medeiros Edmonds Jewelry, Brazilian native Ana Edmonds' handmade collection of vintage and modern jewelry and remixed accessories collection. A little bit of the Southern hemisphere with urban hip NYC appeal via the gateway to greatness - the Lower East Side, of course - now in Brooklyn. Saturday & Sunday
Naïs is the urban crafted lingerie and loungewear collection of designer Anais Bouchard. Lest you think that undergarments should stay undercover and out of sight, Anais will challenge your thinking. Slip on and in and show off one of these. Saturday & Sunday
Our Manhattan pop-up - Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market- heads into the home stretch [closing June 3rd].
