Weekend Market Picks October 29-30, 2011 + Lovely Day Designs

She is known for her extremely wide array of switch plate covers!  Everything from Buddhas and Mermaids, to Flowers, Cats, Pinup Girls and beyond to dress up your walls in a fun, unexpected way!  She also sells delightful magnet sets.  Her lovely soy wax candles are hand-poured into Depression Glass pieces and vintage teacups, and they are beautifully scented. What I love about Louise’s work is that it is creative, lovely, and practical, the essence of fine craft.

Louise is a member of the {NewNew} Etsy Artisans Street Team.  Check for all her Holiday Market events.  Her pieces are perfect for hostesses and for anyone who has light switches in their home.

Here are this week’s Market Picks!  Meh to snow in October!!!

Artists and Fleas: Artists & Fleas is an excellent choice for this ridiculously snowy weekend!  It features amazing vintage clothing and craft vendors, and it is indoors!  Plus it’s a great place to get a groovy Halloween costume that you might actually wear again in real life!

Antiques Garage: This large indoor flea market has not one but TWO floors of antique and vintage treasures, including clothing, jewelry, home decor, artifacts, rare antique books and prints, and many more things that cannot even be categorized!

Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket: Halloween comes to the Greenmarket!  Bring the kids for Pumpkin Painting, the Pumpkin Carving Contest (bring your already carved pumpkins, winner gets a prize!), and an Apple Cider Donut Eating Contest!

Hester Street Fair: CANCELED due to impending weather! Double booooo!!!  Thanks for another great season!

Smorgasburg: For true food lovers, it doesn’t matter if it’s snowing outside.  They will still flock to Smorgasburg for some of the tastiest, most innovative food in the city.  Serious delciousness going on here, with around 75 food vendors, plus the Williamsburg Waterfront Greenmarket!


Fulton Stall Market: Another great place to bring the kids, the closest thing I’ve seen to matching Boston’s SOWA Market of the Living Dead for Halloween fun is at the Fulton Stall Market!  In addition to their great lineup of food, craft, and farmer vendors, the market will have pumpkin painting, appearances by Berenstain Bears, Curious George and Maisy with readings of their favorite spooky stories, trick or treating, and a dance party with DJ Jonathan “Scary” Toubin (2pm). Kids kids kids!

Grab your tote bag, pull on your boots, and head to the Markets!
