Cloth Caribbean pop-up market offers unique items

Posted by Shanelle Weir on December 13, 2014

Christmas is the time of year when you find the best bargains almost anywhere. And one of those places is the Propaganda Space, 24 Erthig Road, Belmont. The Cloth Caribbean designer, Robert Young, presents the pop-up market, Desperate Gifts: Things You May Appreciate VIII.

He tells the T&T Guardian from December 18 to January 3, the public will have the opportunity to purchase some of the finest products and designs from some of this country’s leading designers, artists and craftsmen. 

Designers like Mark Eastman, batik designer Lisa Sarjeant-Gonzales, Shaun Griffith Perez, Lori Antoinette and Gregory Young, to name a few, will all be at the pop-up market selling pieces from their collections.

Jewelry lovers can get unique and one-of-a kind pieces from digital photographer and jewelry designer Arnaldo James who will be selling pieces from his Colour Therapy collection—made from buttons. Or if you prefer understated ethnic jewelry, then Akilah Jaramogi will be there with her designs. 

There is also something for the art lovers as visual artist Brianna Mc Carthy would be there ready to sell you some of her best and latest work. Natural soaps from Ai Naturals and male underwear courtesy Chizl designer Ivaek Archer, will be also be available. And get original print material from Studio Lafoncette, among other items.

Young has been hosting the pop-up market since 1991. The first was showcased at a restaurant called Wazo Dezil in St Ann’s. He then moved the market to various venues. It is now held on three occasions annually, at Propaganda Space.

He explained that a portion of the money made from the sales go to designers and a percentage goes towards the training of ten young people within the Belmont community in craft and design.
