Had Charlie Brown been looking for a place to pal around with his crew this lovely Easter weekend, he'd might just end up taking a spin through the market. And while Charlie's a little bit of a fiction, we do see our own cast of characters get it together in their Sunday best with plenty of Moms, Dads and pals in tow. After all, we've always prided ourselves on being good old-fashioned family friendly fun. Urban archivist Jenny Berry and long-time Williamsburg vintage aficionado Lydia Silfies of Velma Vintage return to their home in these parts for the next 2 weekends bringing their dazzling array of thrifted and salvaged Americana finds (Lydia) that become canvases for imagination, new beginnings and the stuff of a new kind of American outsider art (Jenny). Hail, hail, the girls are back in town! Saturday & Sunday
Dea Dia is designer Jessica Lawson's homage to the study of sacred geometry, Art Deco architecture and the Usonian Style of the early 20th century (see photo above). But don't let the heady stuff put you off for a minute. Jessica is one super-down-to-earth Brooklyn gal inspired as much by things archaic as she is by the world that surrounds. See for yourself as she sets up shop this weekend and next. Saturday & Sunday
Spring renewal always means makeover. And we've got a few folks who promise to deliver. Jill McKeown's Sabi Collection is a stunning study in the dexterity and beauty of wood - Jill showed earlier this season but Spring is definitely on the mind. Triple Gemini Vintage brings designer and unique vintage pieces with a nod towards the avant garde along with designer Maggie Foster's own collection of original pieces of up-cycled garments. Studio-842 and Forget Paris (for shame!) share their beloved collection of vintage show pieces and show-stoppers both original and carefully collected.
Abstract Beauties is Rachel Carbonell - a self-described artist, writer, dreamer and teacher - showcase of drawings, prints, paintings and pastels ready for your pleasure. Saturday & Sunday
