Do you miss the days of summer camp?

We might not be tie-dying, and lanyards and pasta picture frames might not be in the cards, but the talented designers behind NYC's independent Etsy artists, The NewNew will be hosting a crafty afternoon session of DIY handmade fun! We'll be making Turk's Head Knot Jewelry, also known as Sailor Bracelets: http://www.beadinggem....

And even if you don't feel particularly crafty, come through with games, frisbees, picnic supplies or anything else, and hang out!

Take the FREE Governors Island Ferry departing every half hour from the Battery Maritime Building located at 10 South Street, adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry in Lower Manhattan. And we'll see you there!

The first 10 people to show up and get crafty will receive exclusive, limited edition Yelp Summer Camp t-shirts!

Stoopher and Boots

Stoopher and Boots is a new store on the Upper West side of Manhattan (Amsterdam between 78th and 79th St.) whose items are just as cute as its name. Sisters, Stephanie and Elizabeth, were given these nicknames, respectively, by their father. Seeing as how the store is filled with adorable items for babies, children, and adults alike, it is completely appropriate. Check out some of my favorite items from the store:

What started out as a simple etsy shop has turned into a "brick & mortar" filled with the whimsical, fun, and funny.

Here's the best part (for me, anyway): Stoopher and Boots will now carry selected Mulryjewels items!

Check them out online or in person!

First Sales at GI!

So, I'm not sure which items yet, but I sold my first 2 items on Governors Island this past weekend! I suspect that it was a rivoli ring and a crystal ball necklace (pictured below). I don't actually work there until July but I want to go visit this weekend if I can find the time. The house is great and it is a really great day trip from NYC. Hope to see you there!

Governor's Island is WHERE its at!

So, I visited the {newnew} street team's House on Governor's Island this afternoon. In a word: WOW. This house is amazing. The jewelry is set up like any chic NYC "Brick & Mortar" boutique.

The shop, located at House 6B in Nolan Park, Governors Island, has somewhat of a nautical theme, calling itself the etsy {newnew} "Treasure Chest" and all of the catalogues, press releases, and other promo material is amazingly designed like old treasure maps. This was a genius idea and the house looks fun, inviting, and chock-full of amazing products.

Click here to take a look at the Ferry Schedule. There are ferries from Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The island itself is an old military base and the buildings all look uniform and historical. It is like a journey to another part of the country in one 8 minute boat ride. It is tranquil and covered in green grass and shady trees. The island was closed for years and recently reopened to the public. Ther are art exhibits, food vendors, activities for kids, shopping (that's where we come in), and even theatre pieces being developed there this summer. I am so excited to be a part of this. Find out some more interesting stuff here.

Watch the ABC 7 News story here!!!

Governors island opens tomorrow, June 5th. This weekend Etsy's {newnew} street team will be virtually all over the city at various fairs. Look for us (though not me, I will be in rehearsals all weekend) at the Renegade Craft Faire in Brooklyn, The Brooklyn Flea (ooh, fish tacos, yum) at Fort Green and at the Bank at 1 Hanson Pl., the Hester St. Market downtown, The Brooklyn Indie Market , and the Fulton Stall Market at South Street Seaport!

Its a beautiful day to support local artists! Thanks, everyone!
