Tucked in a small gym behind a doorway of thick plastic curtains in the NoLita neighborhood of Manhattan is a space full of inspirational design and creativity. Every weekend, the gym in St. Patrick’s church becomes a market for young designers to peddle their crafts to fashionistas that are looking for designers accessories and jewelry.
This past weekend, Coolil.com joined the crowd to showcase the best of Israeli jewelry and accessories – including charm jewelry by Shelly Assody, symbolic Kabbalah jewelry by YOYO32, Augusta jewelry by Karen Peleg, Efika wallets, Kisim bags from the Sex And The City movie and Daniella Lehavi handbags and accessories.
Coolil.com was one of the many tables across the floor showing their designs while shoppers drifted from vendor to vendor trying on accessories and clothing to see what they liked best. The variety of items the shoppers could choose from was wide, ranging from large wool overcoats to headbands adorned with colorful feathers. The most popular items at our table were by far the Kisim Wallabe – origami wallets, our handmade Jewish jewelry and the Efika clutch wallets. Nearly every visitor to our table picked up these favored items and commented on their great quality and unique design.
Simply known at The Market NYC, this event takes place every weekend at 268 Mulberry street from 11 am to 7 pm and has become known as the best place to get great finds at great prices and is even known to draw A-list celebrities in as customers (this week Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Rafaeli were seen there).
Coolil.com is going to make reappearance this coming Saturday (02/21) so if you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and shop to see leading Israeli designers at discounted prices!
