Friends, wonderful craft markets seem to be popping up all over the show these days. I love it! I love this move towards small, local business. And that it encourages entrepreneurship and creative living. One such market is the Brooklyn Design Fair. This market is on in Pretoria, Gauteng every Friday from 14:00 until 21:00.
Situated on the second floor of Brooklyn Square, the Brooklyn Design Fair aims to create a sustainable pop-up event, allowing the public to spend their leisure time while enjoying local food and design.
Hosted weekly on a Friday from 14:00 – 21:00, creating a communal and interactive space for the public to enjoy the fair.
With strong focus on contemporary design elements – albeit the culinary, clothing, decor or home ware industry – the Brooklyn Design Fair with its hand selected vendors sell products they have themselves sourced, designed, refurbished, preserved or hand crafted. Thereby building credibility, authenticity and longevity with its target market.
The Brooklyn Design Fair will not only give small enterprises lots of exposure but will allow local designers/artists/entrepreneurs & small business owners to engage with their customers in a creative, informal setting.
The most existing bit of all is that I will be exhibiting there this coming Friday, the 25 July with Ampersand social stationery. I am super excited, as it is my FIRST MARKET EVER. I have been planning for days.
Pop in to say hi and check out all the Brooklyn awesomeness.
