Weekend Market Picks Jan. 19 & 20, 2013: Father Panik Knuckle Tattoo Gloves
Attention All Badasses: Father Panik has all you need to maintain your reputation. Their jewelry designs for men and women feature brass knuckles, knives, crosses of all sorts and skulls, as do their graphic tees, prints, and “dangerously cute” hand towels. Okaaaay, we are now moving into the territory where you don’t have to actually be a badass to love Father Panik designs. You just have to want to to be one. Like me.
Take their fantastic, fingerless knuckle tattoo gloves, for example. The fingers are hand-embroidered with terms like “Love/Hate,” “Hell/Yeah,” “Rock/Star,” “Bad/Ass” and “Broo/Klyn.” They come in black, grey, brown, beige, red and pink (pictured – clearly something for badass wannabees). They also have the cozy mitten to pull over your fingers once you’re done threading needles, eating French fries or picking pockets, or whatever it is that badasses actually do).
Mika Kitamori and Scott Machens are the clever designers behind Father Panik. Their home base is Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg, and you an also find their products in some great shops around the country.
And now for our Weekend Market Picks:
Saturday, January 19, 2013
Abingdon Square Greenmarket: I shopped at this farmers market for a decade, and I dearly love it. It’s a wonderful part of life in the West Village, and its year-round farmers have everything you need for your weekly menu, as well as compost collection and textile recycling. 8AM – 2PM, Hudson Street and West 12th Street, Manhattan
Arthur Avenue Retail Market: Arthur Avenue was one of the original indoor markets created by Mayor LaGuardia in the 1940’s to get the pushcart vendors off the streets. This market is filled with fantastic Italian food vendors, including a butcher, an Italian grocery, a pastry shop, a deli and more. Little Italy is alive and well up in the Bronx! 8AM – 5PM 2344 Arthur Avenue, The Bronx
Saturday and Sunday, January 19 & 20, 2013
Artists & Fleas: This indoor flea market is home to many amazing vintage dealers and New York designers, including Father Panik. It’s a great space in the heart of Williamsburg. 10AM – 7PM, 70 North 7th Street between Wythe and Kent, Brooklyn
The Market NYC: The Market NYC is essentially a collection of mini-boutiques, all in one large space on Bleeker Street. Artisans and designers set up their shops in this venue, which is actually open Wednesday through Sunday each week. Shop here for fashion, accessories and home decor. Saturday 11AM – 9PM, Sunday 12PM – 8PM, 159 Bleecker Street, Manhattan
Sunday, January 20, 2013
Tompkins Square Park Greenmarket Another small neighborhood farmers market, this one on the southwest corner of the park is sweet and complete. You can find fresh local fish, dairy, baked goods, fruit and vegetables here. And then go for brunch at one of the many unique and attractive restaurants in the East Village. 8AM – 6PM, Avenue A and East 7th Street
Sunny and mid-40’s this weekend! Get out there and enjoy it!
