now bigger and brighter, for our future.

The Heather Hart Experience and DUMBO Arts Festival 2013 present Barter Town (Trading Post XI: The Magic Feathers)!
Pay attention to the descriptions to see what to bring with you!

Dumbo Arts Festival is “… a feast for the senses that attracts 200,000 visitors over 3 days with the participation of over 500 artists from a variety of disciplines, 100 studios, 50 galleries and stages and 100 programming partners.”  
Whether you want face painting, performance, a film, sporting competition, a raffle, some art, costume making, massage therapy, palm reading, lessons, clothing, a nail salon, vouchers for services, promises, people’s court or anything else, Barter Town is the place to find it and swap for what you have to give! The Heather Hart Experience presents Barter Town (Trading Post XI: The Magic Feathers), the newest cycle to Hart’s Trading Post will be located behind the York street stop on the F train at Jay and York streets. Bring your goods, ideas, valuables and creativity and go home with something more!!

Barter Town will have the appearance of a street fair or block party, but remember, all “booths” would run on bartering only- no currency allowed (no I-owe-yous for money, although drawing an I-owe-you for service is great).
