This Saturday and Sunday is Unique NYC, a weekend long community shopping event that showcases local, modern, made-in-America designs, fashion, art, and food. Above are some items from the vendors' websites that I liked! (Alas, I can't personally attend, but look for UPPERCASE postcards and photographer Yvonne Rock who will be documenting the event for the UPPERCASE blog.)
November 17 and 18 from 11am to 6pm
Center 548 (548 West 22nd Street)
Tickets are $10 at the door and you get a free tote bag plus there's an open bar, DIY projects, complimentary massages... and 10% of the proceeds go to a local non-profit World Up. Show your New York artisans some love this weekend, I'm sure they would appreciate it greatly!
