The Old School, a converted space at the intersection of Prince and Mott in the Nolita neighborhood of downtown Manhattan, is currently hosting a holiday pop-up market featuring nearly forty local(-ish) craftspeople and merchants who deal in all variety of vintage, local, one-of-a-kind or otherwise hard-to-come-by clothing, jewelry and objects. As buzzy as it may sound, Deck the Halls NYC is "artisanal" done right, a decidedly anticommercial marketplace for everything from Brooklyn-made bags (from half a dozen different labels, no less) to ginger syrup and everything in between.
Case in point, BKLYN Dry Goods' immaculately-curated room is chock-full of awesome objects for the tasteful urban adventurer, including rare vintage gear, limited-edition timepieces, and all variety of bags... Not to mention longtime Core favs Outlier, for those of you who want to check out the Minimal backpack in person.
The watches are a collaboration with Japanese watchmakers Dedegumo
