You'd Think It Was Summer: Franklin Hopping Today





It's a perfect St. Patrick's Day on the Avenue, but the foot traffic up and down would make you think it was June. At About Time Boutique, their blowout, everything-must-go sale is offering t-shirts for $10, hoodies for $15, and jackets for $35 until 9pm tonight (ILFA scored some limited-edition Franklin Avenue tees for friends and family). A few doors down, Stork is all decked out for the holiday, and across the street, the Built in Brooklyn Craft Fair is rocking for at least another hour, featuring perennial favorites from Planet Ert, Servus Cookies, and We've Got You Covered, as well as some new vendors. Perhaps the most surprising and fascinating of the new arrivals are the folks from Loomi, who've created an assemble-it-yourself paper light that looks like something that should cost about $300 at a design store, but can be bought for a fraction of that at the fair or from their website. For those who can't make it out today, the fine folks at Owl & Thistle have begun stocking many of these locally-made crafts in their shop.
