If you haven’t had the chance to get a glimpse of the vendors and all we’ll have in store, well…. what are you waiting for?!?
This Sunday April 1st, from 11am-5pm, we’ll be setting up shop with 29 fabulous, one-of-a-kind artisans at LITM (140 Newark Ave in downtown Jersey City). We’ll be raffling off prizes from JC Tattoo, the Underground Supper Club, Damaged Wear, Great Bowls Afire, The Intuitive Goddess, Green Shave, Morlees Clothing, LITM & All Kinds of Whoopie. If you donate $5 at the door, you’ll get two free raffle tickets AND you’ll be helping support Liberty Humane Society. A portion of the raffle sales and suggested door donation will go to LHS.
Real Deal Women and Yelp.com will be there to get the inside scoop and pass out some free schwag. Come early, get candy!
Alsooo, LITM will have some awesome specials on local brews and hand-crafted spring/brunch cocktails during the event
We can’t wait! And we’re so excited you’ll be joining us in the foolery!
Won’t be able to make it? Well, we feel sorry for you…
BUT no worries! You’ll be able to see us very soon in Van Vorst Park, May 12th… the day before yo’ mama’s day.
Parks & Crafts are going to be a blast!
Oooh, we’re poets and didn’t…(you get where we were going with that, right?)
To all our beloved artsy fartsy friends and creative geniuses out there, this is the LAST week to sign up for the Everything Jersey City Festival under the Not Yo’ Mama’s discounted group rate. Click HERE to download the application.
This festival festival celebrates community pride and harmony. It is TEN (10) Blocks (Central Avenue between Hutton and Congress Street) long with FOUR (4) stages of family fun and FREE Music & Entertainment! It features premier artists and artisans, tasty festival foods, great one-day-sales at participating businesses and much, much more!
Don’t live in Jersey City? Pfffttt. Big deal. You are STILL totally welcome to apply. We like meeting folks from all over; diversity is one of the things that makes this neck of the woods so much fun!
Also up for grabs:
An original, handmade, one-of-a-kind bowl from Great Bowls Afire.
GBA is a pottery tag team who makes beautiful wares with a nod to nostalgic themes (pac man, anyone?) & funky, hip patterns (skulls, bees, guitars… oh man!)
Damaged Wear will be giving away a certificate for one of their must-have t-shirts. Gotta f&#@’ing love THAT!
Check back later for more updates on fun schwag we’ll be doling out.
Rumor has it, Yelp.com will be on hand to pass out tote bags for those who sign up for their weekly mailings. Free schwag and the chance to stay more informed about the goings on in Jersey??? Yes, please!
Yes, I said PRIZES! Because an indoor event would not be fun without a spinning wheel where the outcome is a prize… But not just one prize, several rounds of prizes.
A $5 entry will get you 2 raffle tickets, each ticket thereafter will also be $5 each.
More prizes will be announced in the coming days so stay tuned…..
We’re jumping for joy at the 24 vendors who have made the cut for our Fool’s Fair @ LITM 4.1.12:
The list includes newcomers to NYM like SamKa, Green Elevator Industries, Lil’ Fishy, Noosed Kitty, Vaya Bags and Hecho en Brooklyn. They will be joining the ranks of such favorites as The Craftmen, Great Bowls Afire and Damaged Wear, who have shown past Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fairs.
Bye for now…
