NEW 2013 Addition: Shoppers are encouraged to pre-purchase their Vintage Crawl after party ticket and bring it with them on the crawl to unlock the next level of deals at participating businesses.

Kathryn Irby, a former fashion editor at Lucky Magazine and vintage consultant teamed up with event producer and emmieshouse productions president, Emily Lichtenberg, to explore new ways of shopping your neighborhood. The addition of the concert at Brooklyn bowl feeds into this neighborly notion–Lichtenberg claims, “It was an obvious decision to continue the debauchery of our shopping crawl into the night. Let’s be honest, top hobbies in our neighborhood have always been: shopping, drinking, and shows!” Business partner, Kathryn Irby, echoed this sentiment and added, “Neon Gold and Brooklyn Bowl are the party masters so we’re very excited to team up and take on the night!” (more…)

Brokelyn has a great list covering many neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Here are the highlights closest to us, including our favorite holiday market at 3rd Ward:
The Sixth Annual Handmade Holiday Craft Fair at 3rd Ward
195 Morgan Ave
Dec. 15th 12-6pm.
First 200 people receive a limited-edition tote bag. Featuring over 100 Brooklyn-based vendors, and drinks and snacks from Boerum Hill’s Rucola.
Greenpointers Holiday Market
69 West St.

Featuring gifts, art, crafts and food from Greenpoint and Brooklyn makers. Also a DIY holiday Photobooth and Gift Wrapping Station, and a bar with festive holiday drinks.
Brooklyn Night Bazaar
45 N. 5th Street (enter between Wythe and Kent Ave.)
Through Dec. 22, Friday and Saturday nights, 6pm-Midnight
The Night Bazaar was inspired by markets across Asia, and features vendors (like hand painted skateboards from A Little Beast), art and music (such as Kyp Malone from TV On The Radio). Probably the most anticipated market of the season (and my suggestion as a not to miss!)
Williamsburg Fashion Weekend Holiday Market
Bird River Studios, 343 Grand St.
Dec 15th and 16th
This market features clothing and other types of wearable art by such designers as dresses by Brittany Erb and bags made from recycled materials by Himane Sustainable Designs.

If you’re interested in seeing how a holiday market could work without regular currency exchange, check out the OWS Holiday Bazaar this Sunday from 1-9pm at City Life Wellness (75 Frost St., L train to Lorimer). The event will feature a live barter market, skill workshops, musical performances and other fun activities to keep your mind off the problems with our country’s economy. Here’s the lowdown via Peel Back the Curtain:
This is a FREE event! Why? OWS Sustainability and Evolver are committed to building alternative economies out of the shell of the old. Instead of relying on currency to determine value, we believe in a system that allows individuals to work together and assess value for themselves. People are encouraged to bring items or skills of their own so that they may interact with the vendors. The Holiday Bazaar will be packed with workshops and a live barter market, donation based body work, dinner and live music. Everyone is encouraged to bring an item, art, skill, or service to come and barter with. Folks are also free to accept donations as well. (more…)
There will be shopping, food, with music by Fucked Up, The Hold Steady, Poolside, and many more.
Brooklyn Night Bazaar returns December 15 – 17th inside a gargantuan warehouse in central Williamsburg. The three night extravaganza will be comprised of independent vendors presenting a vast array of products ranging from artwork and prints to accessories and refurbished furniture. There will be live music showcasing the freshest bands and DJs, food vendors to satisfy the most insatiable appetites, and a beer & wine garden to mingle and share an intoxicatingly enchanted experience with the community. The vast open warehouse will be transformed into a night market with lights and projections lighting the spaces to create a cozy and warm environment for the visitors.
Normally it doesn’t feel right to endorse shopping “holidays” started by large corporations, but Small Business Saturday seems to hold more merit than the soulless shit-storm known as Black Friday. This nationwide initiative created by American Express is focused on a formidable goal to get Americans to avoid their Walmart dependencies for a day and shop at local mom and pop shops instead, thus empowering local business and fueling the economy as a whole.
The irony of promoting this event in NYC is that many people already believe in the “shop local” mindset all year round, but although we may pride ourselves on filling our kitchens with farmers market produce and beans from local coffee shops, many of us are still guilty of shopping at large chains for convenience and/or lower prices. Perhaps the greatest advantage of Small Business Saturday is to help us remember to consciously support independent business for at least one day and to see all of the benefits it can bring to the dozens of micro-communities that make up the great city of New York.
