In case you missed it last weekend, the fabulous Hester Street Fair  opened last Saturday at Seward Park  in the Lower East Side of Manhattan to huge crowds and much excitement. By all accounts, the fair’s opening weekend  was a phenomenal success: bringing in over 11,000 visitors on Saturday alone  to mingle, shop, chat, and nibble on tasty treats like handmade popsicles and fancy artisanal corn-nuts. Inhabitat was there to experience this great community event , and we’ll be setting up shop there again this weekend — so come on down and visit us. We hear the weather is going to be gorgeous  this weekend (85 degrees both days!) , so you have no excuse not to come down – it is going to be great!
Team Inhabitat had a great time checking out and manning a booth at the Hester Street Fair  last weekend. Through a stroke of amazing luck we actually wound up with the primest real estate in the whole fair; the booth right in front of the entrance – and everyone who came in the door thought we were the official welcoming committee and asked us for directions to other booths! We also sold some T-shirts, onesies,  zipper-jewelry from Tara St. James , and spent a lot of time explaining our voltaic solar backpack giveaway  (We’re giving away a solar backpack , courtesy of Voltaic , and you can use it to charge cellphones  and other small gadgets). This coming weekend we’ll be back at the fair, and our booth will be filled with soft organic Inhabitat t-shirts and baby clothes , awesome handmade eco-jewelry  and a fun raffle (for the Voltaic solar bag) , so drop in, chat with us and peruse some of the city’s coolest local vendors.
