go green! greenpoint – saturday, may 5

April 29, 2012

This Saturday, May 5 from 11am to 5pm, I’ll be selling Raganella’s Botanical Solutions in McCarren Park on the border of Williamsburg & Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It’s the Go Green! Greenpoint Festival – a belated Earth Day celebration! (Well, every day really is Earth Day).

There’ll be kids activities, wellness demos, and other crafters & artisans on hand selling eco-friendly goods.

I’ll be serving up free herbal tea samples, as well as all-over body cream testers. And just in time for Mother’s Day, I’ll have mini spa & pedicure gift sets.

Come on out and celebrate Mother Earth!

crafted at the canal – my last holiday fair of the year!

December 11, 2011

Wow, I’m still recovering from yesterday’s super successful Holiday Market at PS321 in Park Slope. It was an amazingly well-put-together fair and the crowds were enthusiastic about all of the great offerings from crafters (like me). What I love about fairs like the PS321 Holiday Market are the people I get to meet and introduce to Raganella’s Botanical Solutions. And speaking of great people I like to meet…

So I’ve got one more fair this year, and I’m really excited about it. It’s being put on by Build It Green! (BIG!) NYC and Sustainable NYC, at the new BIG! location on 9th Street near the Gowanus (a perfect location for them IMHO; scroll to the bottom for more info). What I’m most psyched about is the people – the trash crafters and upcyclers – I’ll be in the company of that day. Here are just a few of the amazing artists & designers who will be there selling their goods:

Christian Rathbone (fine rugs)

Second Souls (sculpture)

Bespoke Glass Tiles



Wilder Alison (fabric art)


Rebutton Studios

and so many more. I’ll have my teas, herbal extracts, and body care goods for sale, as well as some special holiday deals. Come on out and get some one-of-a-kind gifts for your loves, and yourself!
