More Festivus Fun: Holiday Markets and Light-Up Brooklyn
As much as I love Christmas sometimes I find it hard to get into the spirit of things. The idea of holiday shopping can be soul crushing, Rockefeller center is like a cage match between tourists and my sense of personal space, and the only tree that will fit inside my apartment is of the made in China flammable variety. That being said, I’m not a total scrooge and do excited about large light installations.
If you’re in the neighborhood be sure to check out “Living Objects” by Jason Krugman. These large LED illuminated figures are the latest offering from the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition. At 6pm, all the lights in McCarren Park will go dark for the inaugural lighting ceremony. It may not be a giant reindeer but it’s festive nonetheless. Stick around for the reception at Light Up Brooklyn’s showroom on N 11th St.
Entering the holiday pop-up market fray is ‘In Your Closet NYC” Mini Market. Specializing in selling vintage and designer goods, In Your Closet NYC, operates as an online shop with expertly curated goods. Their pop-up shop is no different with one of kind fashion, accessories and gifts for guys. Because a scented candle no longer counts as an acceptable gift option.
