Rainy Days September 15 2014
One of the greatest things about doing street fairs in NYC is also one of its biggest drawbacks. You get to be outdoors the entire day, which also means if the weather isn't too nice, you get the worst of it.
You can easily separate new vendors from veterans based on the equipment they bring to the shows. Merchants who have done this long enough know to bring tents with sidings, some type of weights (more important than you think), and bins or other kinds of weatherproof storage for your valuable goods. There's nothing worse than being unprepared for the elements.
Rainy days don't necessarily mean a show is a bust. In fact, sometimes, your shelter will bring potential customers into your tent. This can lead to purchases that otherwise wouldn't have happened. But, more often than not, rain makes what could have been a great street fair simply mediocre, especially when it comes to breaking down at the end of the day.
The lesson to be learned here is this. If you're enjoying a rainy day stroll, and happen upon a street fair, stop by and chat with some of us. Most likely we're not having the best of days, and could use a little cheering up :)

Nyack Springfest 2014 Recap April 14 2014
It's Like I Never Left
Well, that was fun! NYC street fairs are a blast. But, after awhile, they can all seem very similar. With Nyack, I feel like I'm part of the community. From seeing a lot of my friends enjoying the festival, to random OMUNKY t-shirt sitings, Nyack makes me feel very welcome.
The day couldn't have been more lovely. The sun was out, I got to wear shorts, it was perfect. Thanks, Nyack, for a lovely Sunday.
Nyack Springfest 2014 Recap
Nyack Springfest this Sunday! April 11 2014
Wow, it feels like I haven't written about a street fair in ages! I'm so happy to be finishing up this hybernation. It's time to get back out there and sell some tees!
There's no better place to start the 2014 show season than good ol' Nyack, NY. It's one of my favorite places to meet to people and get my merch on. If you've seen me at these shows before, I should be located in pretty much the same place as always (they seem to like to stick me in the center of the fair). If not, I have added a map below to help you navigate.
Nyack's Springfest runs from 10am to 5pm, rain or shine. It looks like we are going to have a beautiful Sunday by the water! :)
For the record, the OMUNKY Street Fair Schedule can be accessed through my Upcoming Shows page.
Nyack Springfest this Sunday!
