Video of the Day: The New Astoria Market & Yania Creations

Last weekend I headed up to see the new Astoria Market!  I’m so happy to see Queens kicking it up a notch in the handmade world.  The borough has wonderful food from all over the world, the glorious Jackson Heights Greenmarket, and apartments that are [relatively] affordable, and now they have the Astoria Market!  Queens, you got it goin’ on!

The market takes place every Sunday in the large. wood-paneled auditorium inside Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden, the oldest beer garden in New York City.   So if you’ve been there for some suds, now you can also enjoy shopping from a great selection of very talented artisans selling beautiful handmade jewelry, as well as other accessories, tee shirts, clothing, children’s toys, and a whole lot more.

I met up with Yania of Yania Creations, who makes colorful, beautiful jewelry using amthyst, garnets, citrines, pearls and other precious and semi-precious stones.  Her sense of color is quite daring, with wonderful, bright combinations.  I really love her work.  Yania is also a member of The {NewNew} Artisan Group.

Definitely go visit the Astoria Market on Sundays from 12pm – 5pm!  And when you’re done shopping, walk over to the beer garden to fondle all your new treasures.
