Event Description

Brooklyn Indie Market Hooks Up with the {NewNew} for a Valentine Fling:

Handmade Shopping Event at Starting Artists on Saturday February 13

Valentine's Day can strike dread in the heart of the hardiest New Yorker: If you're coupled, there's the delicate dance of aligning your own celebratory expectations with those of your beloved; if you're unhappily single, all the emphasis on romance can be special kind of torture. In response to this, Brooklyn Indie Market and the {NewNew} are joining forces to present " A Valentine Fling: A day of fun, flirting, and handmade shopping on Smith Street," Saturday February 13 from 11-6 at Starting Artists, 211 Smith Street. Take the F/G to the Carroll Street Station. Admission FREE.

"We want to turn the stress the holiday can engender on its head and make it fun for everyone, regardless of mated status," said Kimm Alfonso, head of the {NewNew}."We think this event will appeal to people in both camps."

Both The {NewNew}-a collaborative group of independent makers in the New York metro area - and Brooklyn Indie Market-mecca of handmade inspiration on Smith Street, have become known for the caliber of their shopping events.

With 15 designers in categories such as clothing, home décor, jewelry, accessories, paper goods, and bath and body products, the event will give an assist to anyone looking for the perfect gift- for their honey or themselves.

"We hope to continue our quest to present to shoppers the wonderful and diverse range of goods made by local artists," says Alfonso. " A Valentine Fling features some of our best and brightest craftspeople, and puts the emphasis on handmade items for gift-giving. Attendees of the event are also in store from some Valentine-themed family-friendly arts activities led by Starting Artists."
