Bartertown (Trading Post XVI: Mesh & Lace)

The Heather Hart Experience and DUMBO Arts Festival 2014 present:
Barter Town (Trading Post XVI: Mesh & Lace)

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 XVI: Mesh & Lace), the newest cycle to Hart’s Trading Post will be located at Water Street between Washington and Main Street. Dress up post-apocalyptic!! 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 a service is great).

This years' Barter Town will encompass 2 days, September 27th and 28th!
