Join us at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint next weekend, when we’ll be kicking off NYCxDesign week as a media sponsor of the Bklyn Designs fair celebrating the borough’s best artisans, designers, and manufacturers.

From May 8 to May 10, Bklyn Designs will showcase Brooklyn’s best furniture, lighting, textiles, jewelry–and gardening accessories. 

The show is free to the trade, for students, and for media. Tickets are $15 for the general public. Gardenista readers will get a $5 discount per ticket with coupon code GARDENISTA5
