Weekend Market Picks March 30 & 31, 2013 + Royal Doulton Duck

Royal Doulton Duck

It’s my birthday!! And I wish a very happy birthday to my awesome sister, Leslie Seiger, whose birthday was Thursday, March 28th. Growing up, we always had birthday parties together for all our friends. We always flew kites. And if our birthdays fell on or near Easter, Mom would make us bunny cakes. (Since I’ve moved to New York, I always get a yellow cake with pink frosting from Amy’s Bread!)

In honor of the fledgling spring season, I am happy to feature this wonderful, miniature mallard duck figurine. Made by Royal Doulton, this sweet fellow (he’s a male – the females are brown) is about the size of a quarter. I saw it on the table of Michael Rabinowitz at the East 67th Street Flea Market when I visited recently. Look for Micheal’s tables along the back wall inside the market. This tiny duck may have flown to a new home, but his collection is quite intriguing each week. Visit the East 67th Street Market every Saturday, 6AM – 6PM. It’s an early one!

Weekend Market Picks

Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket: This Brooklyn market features a large and splendid array of regional farm products. Get everything you need for this special weekend. Let me know what fun Easter displays the farmers have out! 8AM – 4PM, Prospect Park West & Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn

Saturday and Sunday, March 30 & 31, 2012

Chelsea Market: It’s a big food weekend, and you can get everything you need at Chelsea Market, including baked goods, chocolates, and wine to accompany your Easter or Passover festivities. Monday – Saturday: 7am to 9pm, Sundays: 8am to 8pm, 75 9th Avenue (Between 15th and 16th Streets), Manhattan

Hell’s Kitchen Flea: I truly appreciate this large outdoor flea market not only because of the great things I find there, but because it is open year-round, even on the coldest days of winter. Go show your appreciation and pick up some vintage treasures! 9 AM – 5 PM , West 39th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues, Manhattan

Pompeii Artisan and Flea Market – OPENING WEEKEND! This lovely market in the heart of the Village features a fine mix of handmade artisans and well-curated vintage vendors. It feels like spring has arrived when this market opens for the year. 11AM – 6PM Bleecker Street between Carmine and Leroy, Manhattan

St. Anthony’s Market: St. Anthony’s Market runs along West Houston Street, starting at Sullivan Street in Soho. Make sure you stroll slowly through this vintage and handmade market because it features some outstanding sellers. 10 AM – 8 PM, West Houston Street between Thompson and MacDougal, Manhattan

The Market NYC: You will definitely want to schedule a good amount of time to explore this designers market. Each small boutique is home to an independent designer of jewelry and fashion. The part I love best, aside from the shopping, is being able to speak with the designers themselves. 12PM – 8PM, 159 Bleecker Street between Thompson and Sullivan, Manhattan

Happy Spring!
