WILLIAMSBURG—Over the long weekend, Species by the Thousands is hosting a special Labor Day sale, where all housewares are 25% ff. Stop by on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday to check it out. [RackedWire]
WILLIAMSBURG—On Saturday, the Hester Street Fair will host a Bedford + Bowery Bazaar, and special attractions include the chance to get a five-panel hat from The Amazing Falcon Bowse T-Shirt Transformation Program. (Say it five times fast, and it's free.) Other vendors include In God We Trust, Harvest Cyclery, Beetle & Flor, and food and beer from Bunker Vietnamese and Torst. In addition, the blog had a Williamsburg perfumer bottle the scent of NYC's smelliest spots: the Lower East Side and the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Greenpoint. Those'll be available for sniffing, should you choose to subject your nose to it. [RackedWire]
