This weekend at the River East Art Center, top market, Dose Market, is back, baby. After the jump, Racked's own Rea Frey spells out all the offerings. Fall is the time for shopping--stylish and unique finds from 50 different vendors: food, drinks, fashion, home accessories and (just like Stella), Dose has got its groove back.
In honor of Halloween, pop over to Silver Moon Vintage and pick up a custom vintage costume. Created by Liz Meyer, Silver Moon's costumes range from $50-$150. A few of our faves? A Steampunk costume with a 1900s blouse and skirt, a Gypsy Pirate, replete with a skull corset, and even a one-of-a-kind Cancan getup. Liz will even consult on make-up to help round out the perfect costume.
If you love fashion but Halloween isn't your thing, Samantha Sleeper has you covered. Using salvaged, reclaimed or repurposed materials, her eco-conscious creations will have any lady feeling feminine but edgy.
If all that shopping makes you hungry, visit Green Spirit Living. Homemade, vegan and gluten-free, feast on raw entrees, juices, smoothies, and sweets.
For those who love fall and get nostalgic for school, Yearbook's custom display goods and vintage collegiate ware will make you long for number two pencils and backpacks.
Nothing better to go with shopping than a big steaming cup of coffee. The new kids on the coffee roasting block, Gaslight Coffee Roasters offer a communal roasting space, delectable fare (think charcuterie and cheese platters) and will make you any coffee under the sun (even if it has fifteen words in its name).
After all that perusing, sitting on a nice piece of furniture is the perfect way to end your day. Circa Modern focuses on midcentury modern pieces from Italian, American and Scandinavian designers. Whatever your design aesthetic, they fit the very (stylish) bill.
