If you are you tired of watching Law & Order reruns because The Market NYC has been closed the past two weekends, don’t despair.  The Market NYC will be reopening this weekend – Saturday, January 16th and  Sunday, the 17th.  Take all your holiday money (whatever is left) and return all the H & M and Gap crap and make your way down to the Market. You’ll find the best independent designers in New York City, from jewelry to handbags to t-shirts and winter coats.  Designers have also been waiting anxiously  to show off some of their newest creations for 2010.  Already known for its great prices (20% to 30% cheaper than regular retail), this weekend is also the a great time for bargains.  Many designers will be selling some overstock items leftover from the holiday season (think BIG $$ALE).  Come early for the best selection.

YUMI CHEN returns to The Market NYC every weekend (Sat & Sun) with her Handmade Jewelry and Makeup!

Location: 268 Mulberry Street (between Houston and Prince St). 
Hrs: 11am – 7pm

How’s 2010 treating you so far?
