This Sunday marks the return of Vintage Crawl, a shop and bar hop through Williamsburg and Greenpoint. This year’s crawl is unique, as they’ll be helping with the Hurricane Sandy relief. From the organizers:
The Brooklyn Vintage Crawl is officially back! The first shopping experience of its kind to hit the New York scene, is hosting its Fall Crawl on Sunday, November 11th from Noon-8pm. Last year’s inaugural event drew nearly 1,000 shoppers and thousands of dollars in single-day sales–overall, a neighborly great time!
This premier event will feature a self-led bargain hunt through the best vintage shops in Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Our map featuring all discounts and promotions throughout the neighborhood is available through the mobile platform, Domino Street, which makes The Vintage Crawl accessible to mobile smartphone users before and during the Crawl at www.vintagecrawl.com.
Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts will be a suggested $1-$5 donation added to each purchase. All proceeds will be donated to New York Cares, specifically for Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts in the NYC area.
More after the jump.
Brooklyn Vintage Crawl is an event geared to help support local businesses. Kathryn Irby, a former fashion editor at Lucky Magazine and vintage consultant teamed up with show promoter and Billboard Magazine’s Emily Lichtenberg, to explore new ways of shopping your neighborhood. Irby claims, “Even since last year’s Crawl the vintage landscape has changed drastically. New stores pop up every month, each catering to a different taste level and our favorite mainstay stores are constantly evolving.” Business partner Emily Lichtenberg echoed this sentiment and added, “We’re so excited to be back! Last year was such a great time and we can’t wait to hit the streets with everyone again.”
