This looks really awesome, especially for Newarkers looking for locally crafted gifts.
This week, an eclectic group of local designers, artists and creatives set up shop at 744 Broad Street and introduced shoppers to the Downtown Holiday Market. The market is the brainchild of residential and commercial real estate agent Melvin Sykes, who regularly arranges for vacant retail spaces to be transformed into pop-up boutiques for burgeoning fashion brands.
ll host a “sip-and-shop” launch event today from 6–9pm. Open from 11am–8pm Monday through Saturday and running through January 1, the market offers downtown shoppers fresh alternatives for winter fashion and holiday gift giving. In addition to exclusive collections from area designers, shoppers can purchase handcrafted personal care products, jewelry, music and more.
