Fall is here! Hell's Kitchen Flea Market has nearly doubled in size since the end of summer! In the past few weeks, we welcomed close to a dozen new vendors.
Last weekend, shoppers at the Hell's Kitchen Flea found new vendors like local artist David Pringle, who brought original art. He was selling hand-crafted wallpaper, handmade crystal finials, and an unforgettable feathered evening clutch. The clutch caught the eye of New York's premiere expert on flea market treasure and author of Markets of New York: Karen Seiger.
As we gear up for fall events and the holiday season, shoppers from the neighborhood have joined treasure hunters from around the world. Skull rings, skateboards, and screen printed tees attracted one little shopper. Their treasure hunting was only interrupted long enough to greet Vincent the bulldog.
Also, for first time ever, the HK Flea held an artist demonstration. Judy Negron is Hell's Kitchen's renowned mosaic artist and recent winner of a Hell's Kitchen Foundation Visual Arts grant. She gave a demonstration of her art last Sunday. This marked the first in our occasional series of events showcasing local artists.
Mark your calendars! The Hell's Kitchen Flea will hold two of its biggest events at the end of October:
On October 22/23, the world famous print-makers, Big Ink will bring their uniquely gigantic printing press to demonstrate the art of fine print making.
