Sink your shopping dollars in the local economy this Saturday when you shop at the Holiday Handmade Cavalcade in Nolita, held by TheNewNew, a group of 50 independent artists and artisans selected from Etsy's most talented local vendors (such as BetterThanJam, maker of wonderfully unusual wearables like the thistle-print cowl dress, pictured).
So what's for sale? Everything and everything, as long as it's handmade, high-quality, unique and (almost always) eco-friendly: clothing, home décor, jewelry, accessories, paper goods, bath and body products, toys, baked goods, you name it. You'll recognize some of the vendors from seeing their merchandise in local shops; here, you're buying straight from the source, so expect savings aplenty.
Lead Cavalcade sponsor Etsy is joined by plenty of others, including ReadyMade magazine, Fine & Raw Chocolate, Yelp, Purl Soho, and the Brooklyn Indie Market.
