Walk down any street this weekend and you’re bound to hit a stoop sale or two. But if you’re really looking to buy some unique wares, the Art Mart in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is the place to go.
“The real founding principal is that we want hand-crafted, original pieces of work,” organizer Mark Dicus said. “There’s a large arts community here, but there’s no outlet for it. We’re trying to provide [that].”
With products ranging from handmade jewelry to silk-screened T-shirts and traditional African drums, the Art Mart offers 40-plus local creative types a coveted opportunity to bring their goods direct to shoppers.
“Art Mart 11225: A Community Arts and Crafts Market” will take place 10 am-5 pm on Oct. 13 on Lincoln Road between Ocean and Flatbush avenues. For information, visit www.plgarts.org.
