Bon Voyage Sale at the Treasure Chest

Since June 5th, 2010, the {newnew}’s Treasure Chest, a summer pop-up store, has been an oasis of hidden gems from New York City’s wealth of talented artists and artisans. The rich history and classic architecture of the island has proven to be most inspiring to our contributors. Weather it is a specialty magnet from Lenny Mud, a biking-themed messenger bag from Groundsel, an “I love Governors
Island” T- shirt from Aperture Agog, or a necklace featuring local architecture from Citibitz, many of the items in the Treasure Chest
are designed with Governors Island as its main source of inspiration.

The Partnership of Governors Island with the {newnew} Etsy Street Team has proved to be overwhelmingly successful. All through the summer they have provided local shoppers and tourists alike with a unique shopping experience in which they can view and purchase all things handmade. These items include but are not limited to jewelry, clothing, original artwork, lampshades, pottery, house wares, and beauty products.

It’s almost time to say goodbye to summer, but ,on Governors Island,
the farewell is bittersweet. Along with the Island’s closing for the
season comes savings on your favorite handmade goods from the {newnews}’s Treasure Chest. On September 3rd through the 5th you can save 25% on the entire store of local artisan crafted items .

If Governors Island is your favorite summer getaway, you must stop by for
jewelry, clothing, handbags and more, inspired by its serenity,
history and style. If you’ve yet to take the short ferry ride to this
hidden oasis, this is the perfect time to say “bon voyage” to summer
and “hello” to 25% off the best New York area Etsy items.

This magical pop up store has made its home in Historical House 6B in
the Nolan Park section of Governors Island. On September 6th, 2010,
however, the {newnew} will bury its treasure for good, only to be
found on the etsy pages of its contributing artists. Come in and
shop while you still can, landlubbers.
