Shop the Season: Shop our Neighbors

Charlotte from the executive office peeks her head out of our Bryant Park Shop (kiosk F9) to see what the kiosk's neighbors are selling at Bank of America Winter Village Holiday Shops.

The Bryant Park shop, located on the 42nd Street allée, is neighbors with a few other shops of note. I decided to take some time to poke around and see what I could find.

My first stop was Eda & Betty (kiosk F10), an accessories shop that features unique jewelry from designer Nicole Masserelli. Most of her pieces are made from reclaimed metals and vintage materials specially sourced to inspire thoughts of family keepsakes and heirlooms. A piece that I love is the long heart necklace made from 100% recycled brass door knobs. What makes it so special are the engravings of the words “I love you” in 14 different languages, creating a truly universal message that would be a caring gift for any of your loved ones.

The heart necklaces are displayed on the tan board between the two mannequins. 
Next on the list is Faire Collection (kiosk F7), a shop that sells artisanal accessories to support and help with economic development in impoverished countries worldwide. The shop features a variety of bracelets in a myriad of colors and sizes that I am big fan of. They are so versatile and can be mixed and matched. Perhaps you are going for a beachy look, in this case a stack of different colored beads and braids can help create that fun and lighted hearted statement. Or maybe you just need a simple pop of color to add style to an everyday outfit, in which case one simple braided bracelet with a gold clasp could do the trick!

The bracelets go with any outfit or style, and better yet contribute to economic development in other countries. 
If you are looking for a classic silver accessory with Latin American twist Sumaq Design by Eduardo (kiosk F4) should be your first, last and only stop in the Winter Village. The shop features seven collections of handcrafted 100% pure silver jewelry: Andes, Nature, Piedras, Textura, Velas, Men’s and Circles of Life. My personal favorite is this necklace from the Circles of Life collection called Bunches of Circles. There are also a matching bracelet and earrings in case you want to have a complete set.
The Bunches of Circles collection has beautiful symbolism.

While you are checking out the above three shops don’t forget to pop into Merriweather’s Micro-Soapery & Skincare (kiosk F5) for luxurious soaps and lotions, Three Bluebirds (kiosk F6) for eco-friendly reusable paper towels and Urban Man Made (kiosk F8) for men’s accessories. I promise they are sure to please.

Saturdays, 10am - 9pm
Sundays, 10am - 6pm
