Summer market, here we come…

Bombay Mermaid has been invited back to the Greenpointers market for summer! It’s happening Sunday July 19th, and as always, it’ll be full of amazing vendors, free workshops, arts & crafts, a photo booth, and plenty of other reasons to spend a Sunday in the gorgeous Greenpoint Loft space. This market has become something of a seasonal tradition for my family, friends and fellow artists/designers. I can remember the first time I took part in 2011. Since then it’s grown from a cute little craft fair to a legit pop-up of creativity & commerce.

For the first time ever, I’ll be selling original clothing at the market in addition to jewelry and other vintage treasures. Today I sat outside with a cup of tea and finished painting our new wooden sign. Can’t wait to hang it up!

The news of the summer market also reminded me that I never shared photos from the spring market, which was a blast. It was Bombay Mermaid’s most successful market ever, definitely in part to our upgraded technology (the Etsy card reader, which is so rad). Lots of smiling faces and happy customers.

A tropical moment

I love seeing how Talia of Talia Studio and The Sister Files interprets Bombay Mermaid. She’s been on the blog before, along with her sister (and my sister-in-law!) rocking our colorful prints and boho-inspired styles. These photos of Talia wearing the pom pom kimono sleeve robe from the Bombay Mermaid 2014 collection are completely amazing. I love the way the sunlight catches in the fabric, and that pop of mint trim looks amazing with her complexion and hair color. Such a beauty!

Mariana Yegros in Bombay Mermaid

So excited to post these shots of Mariana Yegros of La Yegros in Bombay Mermaid Trading Co. These photos were shot on the band’s first US tour in September around the streets of Williamsburg by Israeli photographer Ayala Gazit. The team had a blast running around Brooklyn, searching out graffiti and cool spots to capture Mariana’s amazing energy.

With 12 international tours under her belt, she is a force to be reckoned with (and she also went home with a Bombay Mermaid poncho to rock out with on tour). Special thanks to my dear friend and producer Allie Silver for linking us up and making this happen.
