The Hell's Kitchen Flea Market Holiday Shopping Guide 2016:
The Gifting Season is Upon Us!
More than any time of year, the holiday season is the time when shoppers from around the city--and frequently from around the world--visit the Hell's Kitchen Flea in search of unique gifts for the best prices in Manhattan. This year we have more vendors and gift ideas then ever before! Where else on this island of astronomical prices can you find a leather jacket fit for a rocker or a vintage ensemble for the fashionista on your list for around fifty bucks? What about classic skateboards for the little daredevils on our list? It's all at the Hell's Kitchen Flea, of course.
Last weekend we met shoppers who were already looking for holiday gifts for teachers. And we had plenty of great ideas for them. Let's start with jewelry designer Dawn Exton's original jewelry designs, including gorgeous one-of-kind pendants from her original industrial jewelry collection. Dawn sells beautiful, affordable, and unique art pieces that might just be the perfect solution for those who want to show teachers just how much they are appreciated.
We've met lots of shoppers looking for host and hostess gifts as holiday parties approach. And we have great solutions at the flea. Even when you don't know your hostess' decor, there's a great variety of fun and functional gifts, like the lovely handmade Kenyan tote bags we found for a song or gorgeous handcrafted bowls from Turkey. And with so many music aficionados returning to their vinyl roots, a vintage record album is very often a perfect, highly personal, and much treasured gift, suitable for both playing and framing!
Tourists visiting the market often tell us they are seeking gifts for family and friends back home. What could be a better memento of New York than an original abstract painting of 42nd Street?
No matter how daunting your gift list looks this holiday season, start at the Hell's Kitchen Flea and you'll find incredible gift ideas at wonderful prices. Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
