Robert Herjavec, one of the famous sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank, is well known for being wildly successful in sales and business. He recently tested several of his sales mentees on the ultimate sales floor – our Union Square Holiday Market – during a special Shark Tank edition of ABC’s long running Friday night news show, 20/20.
Tipsy Elves, a wacky holiday sweater business that Mr. Herjavec backed on Shark Tank, took over the Rockstar Revolution booth for one day only. Contestants who had been instructed by Mr. Herjavec on the art of the sale then each took a turn in the booth, following the advice of Herjavec via hidden ear piece as they attempted to draw customers in to try on and purchase the fun and wacky sweaters.

The Columbus Circle Holiday Market has once again returned to 59th Street and Central Park West, providing New Yorkers and visitors alike the chance to get into the holiday spirit, cross off all the gifts on their list, and maybe even grab an indulgent holiday treat. We are excited to welcome many great new vendors this year. Here are four that you won’t want to miss:
With Roots is a Brooklyn based jewelry company from jeweler Sharon Goldberg – she crafts gorgeous necklaces that are also tiny terrariums with real plants living inside.With Roots pieces aren’t mere novelties; they’re well-made terrariums that are self-sustaining and designed to be worn on a daily basis. In Goldberg’s own words, they’re “the perfect way to wear nature.” Read More

As the temperature continues to drop, you may be spending a bit more time indoors (that is, when you’re not shopping at the Union Square Holiday Market) – so there’s no better time to liven up your home than now. BEAM, a home-goods and accessories store located in the heart of Williamsburg, is a new vendor this year at the Union Square Holiday Market, and they are offering tons of beautiful products for the well-designed life. Co-founded by Ali Arain, a former corporate lawyer and Greg Coccaro, an interior designer, the BEAM ethos is that good design enhances everyday life, and even the most quotidian object can (and should) be beautiful. We recently caught up with Ali to find out more about their colorful and creative style.
We’re thrilled to be participating in Small Business Saturday again this season! Our Union Square Holiday Market features over 150 independent merchants, the majority of whom sell local, handmade goods; it’s an ideal place to shop and support local artisans.
If you’re shopping with an American Express card be sure to visit a few of our registered #ShopSmall vendors (which include DezignMind, Nanako, Bertha Heide / ProPueblo, Back from Bali, No Chewing Allowed, Momofuku Milk Bar, Himalayan Vision, Kudulah, LolaBean, Rockstar Revolution and others) and earn up to three $10 credits! There’s nothing better than supporting independent, local businesses and saving money. We hope to see you in Union Square tomorrow!
The Union Square Holiday Market offers far more than just holiday shopping. We opened our doors last week with over 150+ vendors, many of them serving delicious food and drink, making the market the perfect spot for a little pre-Thanksgiving celebration. While the market is closed Thursday for the holiday, stop by early this week to get your stuffing and cranberry fix without the family drama, or trying to cook a huge turkey in your tiny apartment kitchen. Here are a few of our favorite Thanksgiving inspired bites:
You can find all your favorite Thanksgiving flavors in a perfectly portioned, bite-sized sandwich with Mighty Balls’ Turkey Cranberry Slider. The rich savory flavor of their turkey meatball is perfectly complimented by a delicious, and slightly spicy cranberry horseradish sauce. Topped with tangy goat cheese and perched on a freshly baked mini bun, it has all the flavors of Thanksgiving in one delicious package.
We couldn’t be more excited to open the Union Square Holiday Market tomorrow morning! Each year we add exciting new merchants to the list and recruit them to sell their wares alongside our veteran vendors. Learn more about some of the newest additions to the UrbanSpace family below, along with some information about their most unique products.
Cork Buds was born to help city-dwellers bring a little green into this concrete jungle, but they’ve surely got universal appeal. Small enough to grow an entire garden in your living room, many of these adorable plants are magnetic and can live on your fridge or wall without you having to give up valuable shelf space. Read More
