Some of the pieces in the collection for men:

JUDY KAYE, a native New Yorker, has always found a way for her creativity to run wild. She tapped into her background in fine art, silversmithing, leather craft, tapestry design, and professional make-up artistry, to create the innovative collection known as Judy Kaye Bounded Style. In 2000, her signature piece - the wrap bracelet - was created . Composed of fine leather, gemstones, distinctive chain & original vintage and Swarovski detail, this most sought after design is a melange of her clear eye for color, her jewelers skill, and her intuitive sense of trend and style. She can be found outside for most of the year; inside when it's cold.

Evening Tea - Lauren & Ben Vien

One fall, Lauren decided to make most of the gifts she gave her loved ones for Christmas. She decided to try her hand at tea cup candles. She loves sipping all kinds of tea and realized that candles are a little luxury that many of us crave. She found something thrilling in rushing to the fine china section of a thrift shop to dust off each piece, hoping to find a tea cup that was “just right”.

Needless to say, Lauren’s small collection of tea cups continued to grow. Ben soon pointed out that this was the perfect opportunity for them to create a tiny business together, something they have dreamed of doing for years. As Lauren poured candles and baked shortbread biscuits for shop visitors, Ben developed the evening tea website and created custom display crates. See more at www.eveningteanyc.com.

A charming gift for anyone who loves the idea of candlelight! You can find them outside or inside - depending on the weather!

Barntiques
Tony Garcia is the owner of Barntiques, a company making one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that are rightly called sculptures. The table below is an example of his style.

Lately, Barntiques has been adding some more unusual, one-of-a-kind art furniture pieces that incorporate sculptured (and structural) steel supports and slabs of beautiful hardwood. The photo at the right is an example. Mr. Garcia will gladly speak to you about any project you have in mind. A chance to own a piece that is truly unique.

In addition to these works of art, he also has created a line of wood framed mirrors whose frames are faux finished to resemble rusted or painted metal. Each one is different and they can be ordered in custom sizes. There are also small plant stands and benches made with the care of an accomplished woodworker. Look for him just inside the gate on W. 77th St. He is there every Sunday.

Nafi's Condiments

This is from a web site for serious foodies: http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2013/06/food-artisans-nafis-condiments-sauces.html

Nafi's condiments distinguish themselves from other pepper sauces by being made with habaneros and scotch bonnet peppers, the same ingredients that are used in her region of Senegal. "They are unique not just for their level of heat but for their intense and bold taste." Nafi recommends the condiments be used for quick meat and vegetable marinades to hummus stir-ins and easy add-ons for grain dishes. Her personal favorite sauce is the cumin: "It is amazing to cook, grill, or simply put on toasted bread and enjoy with goat cheese and figs."
