HEY GREEN-MINDED NEW YORKERS!

In case you missed it last weekend, the fabulous Hester Street Fair [1] opened last Saturday at Seward Park [2] in the Lower East Side of Manhattan to huge crowds and much excitement. By all accounts, the fair’s opening weekend [3] was a phenomenal success: bringing in over 11,000 visitors on Saturday alone [4] 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 [1], 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 [5] this weekend (85 degrees both days!) [5], 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 [7] 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, [8] zipper-jewelry from Tara St. James [9], and spent a lot of time explaining our voltaic solar backpack giveaway [10] (We’re giving away a solar backpack [11], courtesy of Voltaic [10], and you can use it to charge cellphones [10] 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 [8], awesome handmade eco-jewelry [9] and a fun raffle (for the Voltaic solar bag) [11], so drop in, chat with us and peruse some of the city’s coolest local vendors.
