ArtMart 11225 was an annual outdoor arts and crafts market on Lincoln Road featuring original work by Brooklyn artists and artisans. For a small fee, artists registered for a space to sell their work. Local musicians performed throughout the day. ArtMart was promoted locally and through the media.
Community members would meet and greet local artists, find the unique products while spending some quality time on Lincoln Road.
ArtBid 11225 was a silent auction event, where works donated by local artists were sold in a silent auction. The artists are able to set reserve and minimum bids, and may opt to receive 25% of the selling price.
ArtMart 11225 was retired after 2010. Many of the artists, crafters and musicians from past years took part in The Neighborhood Show: October 30 to November 13, 2011
Artmart 11225 2009
The 4th annual ArtMart11225 took place on Sunday, October 4, 2009 and the event was once again a great success! Over 20 vendors sold a wide variety of hand-crafted goods and original art on Lincoln Road. Neighbors enjoyed a beautiful day of shopping, great food, and live music performed by talented local musicians of all ages. Special thanks to Community Board 9, Christine Gant, Leslie Ward, and the whole planning committee!

Lovely Day Designs
Lovely Day Designs came out of Lu Lasson’s philosophy that housewares should be fun. Lu uses beautiful papers and quirky images for light switch covers and magnets, and unique containers for wonderfully-scented soy candles to help you add a little lovely to every day!
Creating gemstone jewelry in gold filled and sterling silver, designing charms and gems for spiritual healing, and making both simple and sophisticated pieces is what I love to do and what I have been doing for the last 3 years of my life.
My background in Music and Film and Television Production, along with a lifetime desire to design and produce beautiful things, lead to the creation of the pieces you see at Yania Creations. What once began as a hobby, putting a few stones together has now become my passion and a bit of an obsession too.
My jewelry can be simple and contemporary, but I also like to create sophisticated and complex pieces that are glamourous and timeless. Make a fashion statement, be unique! All of my pieces are handcrafted only by me with my endless attention and care.
