We came, we saw and we conquered the holiday market at Union Square. Our mission was to find the best shops and cutest handmade goodies that no-one else will have spotted. As an added bonus, you’ll get that good feeling of knowing you shopped local and helped a small business owner to grow their business just that much bigger. So, skip the big box stores and check out the market before it ends on December 24th.

Pretty Prints for Nurseries
Edie, of Edie's Art, creates whimsical artworks that you'll want to hang all over your house, not just a nursery. The New York-based artist paints fantastical worlds where children fly in hot air balloons, perch on tree branches and walk hand in hand through landscapes filled with bubbles. Many of her works have a New York City theme, making them a great addition to any little New Yorker's room.

Edie's Art
Prints $20, prints mounted on woodblocks from $40.
