One-Stop for Eclectic Gifts at Brooklyn Hts. Holiday Market

What to get for the person who has everything? If one, two, or five discerning loved ones on your list have you wrestling with that very question, a trip to the holiday market at Brooklyn Heights Synagogue next Sunday, November 21st, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. might prove worthwhile.

The eclectic selection of wares, meticulously hand-picked by curator/event planner Andrea Perlman, is shaping up to be as one-stop as it gets. “This time of year, holiday markets are as common as tourists in Midtown,” says Andrea. “So we wanted to separate our market from the rest by offering a truly unique collection of hand-crafted gifts at all price points.”

Expect to find plenty of wearable handcrafts, ranging from A Charmed Life’s gem-stoned baubles to Tiki Girl Shop’s pop-art silk shifts for women and girls—and for those who want to wear their love of the borough on their sleeves or backs Table-top enthusiasts can choose from Bongenre’s old world china–inspired melamine table ware or go for the real thing, hand-built by graphics artist–turned–ceramacist Sabina Magnus. Home-brew kits and confected offerings from Brooklyn artisanal stalwarts the Brooklyn Brew Shop and Liddabet Sweets may inspire you to take a different tack with someone on your list as might a stop at the “gifts that give” table. Heifers International will be on hand to accept donations you can make in a loved one’s name toward the purchase of livestock for families and communities who are in a daily battle with hunger. For more details, visit the synagogue’s website.
