Simplifying NYC: Top Picks for Holiday Market Finds

Hello Fabulistas! There’s nowhere like the city during this time of the year with its holiday markets packed full of tents and artisans. The vendors have the best vintage jewelry pieces! So while you’re eagerly awaiting my HGTV holiday special on Dec. 13, browse some of my favorite holiday markets here in NYC.

Columbus Circle Holiday Market

The Columbus Circle Holiday Market started this week and I can not be more excited! It’s open through Dec. 24th and located by Central Park. The vendors change from year to year, but it’s always a sure bet for things like wonderful hostess gifts!

Brooklyn Winter Flea

The largest market in the city is probably the Brooklyn Winter Flea. It’s a key stop of mine for gift shopping. In addition to antique and vintage pieces, you can find repurposed furniture and unique collectibles. It’s only open on the weekends and worth hours of browsing!

Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market is wonderful! It’s home to some of the best restaurants and food markets year-round. During the holiday season, Artists & Fleas set up shop in this indoor location. It’s a one-stop-shop for lots of unique gifts!

Union Square Holiday Market

Although I live quite far from Union Square, I always peruse this market during the holidays. It’s lively and full of unique artisans eager to sell their work. Last year I picked up a few beautiful knit scarves. I can’t wait to see what I’ll find this year!

Holiday Shops at Bryant Park

The Holiday Shops at Byrant Park are interesting. If you hunt through the crowds, you can find some fab pieces. I always leave with a piece of artwork and some great stocking stuffers. Watching the ice skaters at Bryant Park is on my December to-do list, too!
