The NewNew's Third Spring Handmade Cavalcade is Saturday, May 7th! I received this press release from The {NewNew} Etsy Artisans Group, and so I’m spreading the news about their amazing Handmade Cavalcade!  Great shopping, great energy, great fun!

WHO: Over 40 local artists and crafters from Etsy’s The {NewNew} Team
WHEN: Saturday, May 7, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
WHERE: Slate  – 54 West 21st Street, New York, NY 10010

New York, N.Y. April  2011 – Lovers of all things local and handmade are in for a treat on Saturday May 7th when the local Etsy Group, The {NewNew},  brings its third annual Spring Handmade Cavalcade to the posh gaming parlor Slate in the Flatiron District. From 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. shoppers will be able to browse handmade clothing, jewelry, accessories, paper goods, bath and body treasures, toys, housewares and more from some of the most innovative and creative local artisans and crafters working today.

“The first 100 shoppers to arrive will receive free goodie bags packed with a unique sampling of wares from the {NewNew},” said Felicity Stiverson, who is running this year’s event. “Slate’s D.J. will add to the party atmosphere, and anyone who makes a purchase from one of the vendors will get a free round of pool courtesy of Slate.” Shoppers will also be able to enjoy food and drink specials throughout the day.

Because the {NewNew} is  commited to charity partnerships,  representatives from The Creative Center: Arts in Healthcare- a  nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the creative arts to people with cancer, chronic illnesses- will be onhand with information for anyone looking to get involved with the important work they do.
