KTcollection Fall Happenings: A High Line Meatpacking Market for Foodies, Street Fairs, Holiday Markets and More…..
We can’t wait to have a permanent Upper West Side base in NYC. For seven years we’ve been setting up and breaking down our booths at fairs in the heat, cold, wind and rain every weekend, sometimes three times a day. It will be such a nice luxury to be able to welcome our KTcollection community to a beautiful store with comfortable temperatures. (Oh…the simple pleasures of air conditioning and heat.)
But just because we are going to have a flagship store at 315 Columbus Avenue, don’t think you’ll have to miss out on visiting us in the bustle of the holiday markets and street fairs this fall and winter. We love the crowds and the excitement of the markets, and we aren’t ready to give that up just yet. Plus, we know that many of you KTcollection fans still don’t like to travel above 14th Street, so we have secured plenty of other options to come see us downtown and around town September through December.
Urban Space, the same group that organizes the holiday markets at Union Square and Columbus Circle, is launching a new market in the heart of the Meatpacking District. We’ll be steps from the stylish Standard Hotel and in the shade of the High Line in September and October.
We have to admit that bringing our jewelry to the Meatpacking District isn’t the only reason we can’t wait to take part in this truly exciting endeavor. This market is ideal for foodies. Our mouths are simply watering at the thought of all of the high-end food trucks that will set up booths there. While you shop, you’ll be able to keep the men in your life busy tasting their way through the stars of NYC’s gourmet street-food scene. Just make sure they bring you the goods to try too! You won’t want to miss Momofuku, Mayhem & Stout, Asia Dog, Steve’s Ice Cream, Red Hook Lobster Pound, Mexicue, a gourmet juice bar, and many more… Then you can stroll to the Standard to have drinks while admiring the High Line. Stay posted with us for Fashion week specials. The market will be open until 11pm during Fashion Week making it an ideal fall night out.
(The High Line Meatpacking Market will be open Monday through Thursday 11am to 9pm, Saturday and Friday 11am to 10pm, and Sunday 11am to 8pm on the corner of Washington and 13th streets. KTcollection will have a booth there September 1st through October 28th.)
We’ve hand-picked a few of our favorites that we just can’t bear to miss this fall like the Upper East Side 3rd Avenue fair, Crafts on Columbus, Hoboken Arts & Music Festival, and of course the mother of all street fairs and Katie’s all-time favorite, Atlantic Antic.

We’ll bring on the holiday cheer at our usual booths in Bryant Park Holiday Shops (October 26th through January 6th) and at Union Square Holiday Market (November 16th through December 24th).

As you can see, we will have plenty going on here at KTcollection in 2012. We hope you join us for the fun!
