Cameo Sisters’ Coral and Turquoise Necklaces at the Nolita Market

Cameo Sisters Designs, owned by two wonderful sisters, make beautiful handmade jewelry. Their style is quite delicate, and you can see the fine, handcrafted techniques in their pieces if you look carefully.

They have the unique talent of creating statement pieces that are also understated. Look at these coral and turquoise necklaces to understand what I mean. The colors and shapes are dainty and small, but they add a wonderful element of design and uniqueness to your style.

Meet the Cameo Sisters in person Fridays – Sundays at the Nolita Market, weather permitting, on Prince Street between Mulberry and Mott in Lower Manhattan. And follow Cameo Sisters Designs on Facebook.

Weekend Market Picks!

Friday, September 26, 2014:

Gentleman’s Vintage Show and Sale: This unique men’s fashion event is sponsored by Manhattan Vintage. The website promises “rare vintage denim, work wear, military, tweeds, hats and leathers to beautifully tailored suits from the 1940’s.” There is also a special exhibit called, “Variation In Plaid & Scottish Clan Tartans.” Sounds intriguing, no? $15 entry at the door. 12PM – 8PM, Metropolitan Pavilion 2nd Floor 123 West 18th Street between 6th & 7th Avenues, Manhattan

Rockefeller Center Friday Greenmarket: This market is open right on the plaza, and it is always very beautiful, with seasonal displays and checked table cloths on the farm tables. Fresh local produce, baked goods, dairy and preserves create a haven of calm in this extremely busy and bustling part of town. 8AM – 5PM, Rockefeller Place at 50th Street, Rockefeller Center North Plaza, also open Wednesday & Thursday, Manhattan

Friday – Sunday, September 26-28, 2014

DUMBO Arts Festival: This three-day event is free to the public and takes place all over the DUMBO neighborhood. Over 400 artists and performers are participating, and many neighborhood studios and galleries are open for visitors. It’s an incredible way to get a large dose of art, beauty and creativity for the entire family. Friday 6pm to 9pm, Saturday noon to 9pm, Sunday noon to 6pm, throughout DUMBO, Brooklyn

Nolita Market: Located on the sidewalk of Prince Street in Lower Manhattan, this market has been home for many years to some of the city’s best designers and makers of jewelry, accessories, fashion and tees. The quality, craftsmanship and design diversity in this market keeps me coming back. It is open Friday – Sunday every weekend along the south wall of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral unless it’s raining. 11AM – 6PM, Prince Street between Mulberry & Mott, Manhattan

The Wellness Market: This market is an innovator in a new trend of health and wellness markets and products. It is a lovely collection of vegan food, natural products, vintage clothing and even organic mocktails to refresh you as you shop and visit with other people at the market. 11am-7pm, 143 Waverly Avenue at Myrtle, Brooklyn

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Brooklyn Flea Fall Record Fair:  This annual event for music lovers features dozens (50+) vendors selling thousands of vinyl records. Meet collectors, record labels, DJs and record shop owners who bring their collections to Brooklym. There is also a beer garden, and the Smorgasburg food market is right next door for after you’ve worked up an appetite from all that bin flipping. 11AM – 6PM, East River State Park next to Smorgasburg, Brooklyn

London Terrace Street Fair: I look forward to this event every year! It is truly a city block-long yard sale. While there are several professional vintage sellers in the mix, the majority of vendor spaces are used by neighbors and residents of the gorgeous London Terrace apartment building. They empty their closets, and we get to pick through it all for treasures, like those Frye boots that got away 4 years ago. (I’m still bitter.) 10AM – 5PM Rain or Shine, West 24th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues, Manhattan

Saturday & Sunday, September 27-28, 2014

NYC Big Flea: The Big Flea organization is bringing 600 booths to New York City this weekend. Come to Pier 94 for amazing and inspiring vintage shopping for jewelry, clothing, furniture, decorative and fine arts and much more. $10 admission for two days. 9AM – 7PM Saturday, 10AM – 5PM Sunday, Pier 94 at West 54th Street, Manhattan

Sunday, September 28, 2014

Atlantic Antic: The Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation (AALDC) is hosting the 40th annual Atlantic Antic, a street festival that all New Yorkers can get behind. It is different from your standard street fair because local businesses are involved. They get to extend their shops to the sidewalk for the day. There are always outstanding local artisans and live music. Plan on doing a lot of strolling because this event runs for blocks and blocks. 12PM-6PM, Atlantic Avenue from Hicks Street to 4th Avenue, Brooklyn
