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!

Bombay Mermaid is currently featured on Threaded Vibes! Read up on how you can work our pieces into your 2014 festival wardrobe. Thanks to Courtney for showing us some love:

“Everything within the Bombay Mermaid’s Etsy store is full of life and color! From the jewelry that she hand makes in Brooklyn, NY to the vintage pieces she has found, none of it lacks uniqueness or beauty. Recently I have been attracted to Indian influenced fashion (especially accessories), so finding Bombay Mermaid was like hitting the jackpot. And although I’m obsessed with everything in her store I’d have to say that my festival favorites are the vintage bindis from India, rhinestone pendant necklace, and Bollywood head chains.”
