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
The Columbus Circle Holiday Market is officially open for business! Located in one of the most stunning locations in New York City, at the southwest entrance of Central Park, the market is the perfect place to enjoy a hot meal or snack, shop for holiday gifts and spend time with friends and family.
2014 market visitors will find a perfectly curated blend of UrbanSpace veterans and new innovators; our merchant list includes a diverse array of products, from fine art to children’s apparel and toys, from gorgeous handmade jewelry to artisanal jam and holiday ornaments. Notable new vendors include Natchie Art, With Roots, India & Purry and more. 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.
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.
