The Young Designers Market: Hidden Gems


Last weekend, one of my best girlfriends introduced me to the Young Designers Market in downtown NYC. The market runs every weekend from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and hosts up-and-coming designers who display a variety of hand-made jewelry, clothing, and accessories. Once inside, the two of us made a beeline to the jewelry section, where everything from wire-thin gold earrings to funky chunky necklaces boasting incredibly reasonable prices hung on display! For just $25, I scored two pairs of gorgeous, colorful, and not to mention expensive-looking earrings from a designer who could (and should) go big one day. For now, I’ll enjoy the great steal!
