Today was my first Sunday off in a while. Though I usually like to spend my Sundays in bed cuddled up with Netflix or downing bellinis over brunch, I decided to do some exploring in my Harlem neighborhood. Maybe I’ve been living under a rock but Harlem has been the home to some awesome events lately! The Sugar Hill Market is one of them.
Located on West 132nd Street at the La Maison d’Art, the Sugar Hill Market features products from a variety of vendors of color. I found out about the market while scrolling down my Instagram’s explore page. (Sidenote: Who knew that page was great for more than just being nosey!) From soaps and hair care products to jewelry and bow ties, this little gem in a brownstone was an awesome way to spend my Sunday afternoon.
Checkout some pics of the artwork, my buys, and info on vendors below!
Sheryl Roberts, owner of Indigo Style Vintage, brought a rack of her finest summer dresses, flirty skirts, and printed pants to the Sugar Hill Market. Her vintage clothing ranges from sizes 0 to 22 for decent prices. The Brooklyn beauty’s plethora of purses and accessories caught my eye as well!
A little something for the fellas! Boy Beads, created by Howard grad Sebastian Mitchell, is an amazing accessory line. The line is filled with handcrafted necklaces and bracelets beaded with semiprecious stones. Boy Beads are a great gift for bae or for your dad (Father’s Day is right around the corner)!
I love body products. LOVE. So when I came across Flo+Theo’s table, I immediately fell in love. Created by sisters Ebony and Mayowa, Flo+Theo is a skincare line thats targeted to those with sensitive skin and made of 100% vegan ingredients. Its line includes body butters, oils, scented soaps, and even beard oil.
I ended up buying Flo+Theo’s coal activated soap which should help with my oily summer skin.
Candles are necessary. The best candles not only add to the ambiance ( or set the mood) but also keep your apartment smelling great. Created by Travelista Terri, Harlem Candle Company produces soy based candles and uses fragrances that are reminiscent of Harlem. What I loved most about these candles was the variety of scents. All of the candles had great and not overbearing smell to them, which make them great gifts!
All in all, The Sugar Hill Market was an awesome discovery in my hood! If you’re in the NY area, Sugar Hill Market will be back in action on June 28th!
