Brooklyn Indie Market Designers Out of Hibernation!

Save April 3rd and 4th for the Grand Reopening Weekend at BIM

Saturday 11-7 and Sunday 11-6, will mark the 4th grand reopening of Brooklyn Indie Market , a weekly weekend market showcasing some of the freshest names in jewelry, clothing, handbags, kidswear, bath, silk screened men’s t-shirts and product design. Located on Smith and Union Streets in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens, indie designers of all stripes and inspirations will once again be found under the red and white striped tent, which has become a weekly gathering spot for in-the-know Big Apple shoppers. The gutsy little marketplace which places an emphasis on showcasing limited-edition, emerging designers has been touted by media like Time Out New York, New York Magazine, Italian Marie Claire and a bevy of fashion blogs as a beloved neighborhood style dealer for your fashion and design fix. BIM is conveniently located steps from the Carroll Street Station of the F/G trains.

After a wintery, three-month hiatus, Brooklyn Indie Market designers re-emerge with a new bag of design tricks, some of which actually are handbags Fofolle’s new line of gallery bags are perfect for hobnobbing while balancing a flute of champagne.
