Crafts in Chelsea

What a great street fair! Everything on 21st st. between 9th and 8th ave's was handmade and original works of art by local talent. No mass produced crap and no sneaky sales people. We had a great time...until the winds came.

I learned that whatever hollywood or the media, or pop culture says about New Yorkers being rude people is complete crap. My tent blew right into the street, Mary-Poppins-style, and 4 different people caught it and helped me take it down in the blustery wind. I also got help from my fellow {newnew}-ers when my jewelry started blowing into the middle of the street.

Even with the record-breaking winds I sold pretty well and there was no rain. I am so proud to be a part of a team that can pull together for this kind of awesome event. Thanks to Lorrie from Lenny Mud for organizing this event. We even managed to raise money for a local Public School!
