Weekend Market Picks February 16 & 17, 2013 + KM Candles & Body

KM Candles and Body Artists and Fleas

I understand that slate, steel, teal and cool beige are the colors of the day. Chic and sleek, no doubt, but forgive me if I err on the side of bright orange, purple and red in my personal preferences! This is why I find the beautifully colored and wonderful smelling candles from KM Candles and Body so refreshing and delightful. KM’s Kelly Marks sells her vegan soy candles each weekend at Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The scents she creates are as appealing as the colors. The purple is Lavender Vanilla Soy. The yellow is Lemon Chiffon. The teal is Basil and Herb. In her Brooklyn studio, Kelly hand pours the soy wax into Ball jars with pewter lids. The lids have a flower shaped cutout, and the candles subtly exude their scent even when not lit. Store your candles an armoir, and you will be met with a lovely whiff every time you open the closet doors. KM Candles burn for 100 hours.

Kelly also makes soaps, oils and room sprays. And she designs beautiful jewelry as well. One of her signature designs that I fell in love with is a locket necklace made with a collection of vintage lockets. Teensy round ones, heart-shaped ones, teardrops and filigree, the necklace pictured is a beautiful keepsake gift. I had one of those little heart lockets as a kid, but I just can’t remember what picture I had in there. I know who would be in my locket now though, which is a comforting thought.

Visit KM Candles and Body every weekend at Artists and Fleas and check out her store on Etsy! And give Kelly a “like” on Facebook if you love a sweet smelling rainbow!

Tribeca Greenmarket:The Tribeca Greenmarket is a wonderful destination for visitors to the storied neighborhood, but mostly it is frequented by families with children who go early in the morning. The farmers bring wide variety of products each weekend, and you can pick up a delicious muffin and some juice for breakfast while you shop. 8AM – 3PM, Greenwich St. between Chambers and Duane, Manhattan

Saturday and Sunday, February 16 & 17, 2013:

Brooklyn Flea: It’s time for another shout out to the Brooklyn Flea. The Flea is a traditional flea market in many ways, but mostly it is a hotbed of entrepreneurship, creativity, commerce and yummy things to eat.  10AM – 5PM, One Hanson Place, Brooklyn

Chelsea Market: Chelsea Market is for food lovers. If you love to cook, you can find fresh and amazing ingredients of every kind. If you love to eat, there are bakeries, sandwich shops, soups and fine dining. It is also the home of the Food Network, for obvious reasons. Open 7 Days, Saturdays 7AM – 9PM, Sundays 8AM – 8PM,  75 9th Avenue, Manhattan

Independent Designer Pop Shop at Chelsea Market: EXTENDED! The ID Pop Shop will be open daily through February 24th. Check out this beautiful gathering of fine New York designers of fashion and accessories, as well as home decor. Be the first to sport the freshest designs this season! 10AM – 7PM in the central event space at Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, Manhattan

Sunday, February 16 & 17, 2013:

Greenflea: The Greenflea is a year round vintage, flea and artisan market, one of the longest running in New York City! The stalwart outdoor vendors are out in the school yard in all weather, and the hallways and cafeteria are transformed in wintertime into a winding bazaar of tables and objects to catch your eye. Vintage Tiffany tableware and precious jewelry – there are some serious treasures here. 10AM – 5:30 PM, Columbus Avenue between W. 76th and W. 77th, Manhattan

Enjoy your weekend! Is it just me, or does anyone else feel a touch of Spring in the air?
