CHELSEA MARKET GOES JINGLE AGAIN W/HOLIDAY POP-UP STORE, DEC. 10-23
Shopping extravaganza decks the halls of Chelsea Market with art & industry
MANHATTAN — (Nov. 23, 2009) — Chelsea Market will be serving more than fabulous food this holiday season. Beginning Dec. 10, and continuing until Dec. 23, the market will host “JINGLE” a Holiday pop-up store now in its third year.
JINGLE is a shopping extravaganza featuring a collective of independent designers, selling their wares directly, and various performance art and video designed to tickle the imagination.
Items at the JINGLE will include nostalgic, vintage groove jewelry and home accessories, green products recycled from cashmere and felted wool (both edgy and high style), candles, fine handmade contemporary porcelain, natural skincare, wall art constructed from recycled spice tins, fine stationery and curiosities, quirky and fun knitted wire sculpture, playful letters and words in metal, retro kitchen fashion, handcrafted leather goods, kitsch stocking stuffers, and a bounty of other beautifully designed products for body and home and for just about everyone and everything.
The shopping festival is a natural extension of the playful architecture that characterizes the retail level of Chelsea Market, and its visiting designers will pick up where the hall leaves off.
“Our edgy, yet arty take on gift giving promises to put excitement into your holiday shopping,” said festival creator Jill Schwartz. “This is the perfect setting for us as ‘Art Meets Industry’ in our store, and Chelsea Market’s unique spirit reinforces our vision.”
JINGLE’s grand opening is Dec. 10 at 4 p.m. The event continues through Dec. 23. Hours are Monday through Friday 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
