The last holiday season was not a pretty one for Red Hook businesses. But if there’s a community that can bounce back, it’s this tight-knit group of resourceful owners who know how to throw a good neighborhood event. They’ve deemed this Saturday, Dec. 7 “Discover the Hook” day, and are gathering all of their talented, resident makers into a holiday pop-up market at Atelier Roquette (63 Commerce Street) from noon to 8pm. In one place you’ll find succulent terrariums from Kerry Quade Design, handmade wreaths from Saipua, children’s toy kits from Maker’s Toolbox, treats from Home/Made like citrus ricotta and salty burnt caramel, and loads of other original goods like jewelry, gift-worthy wine from Red Hook Winery, plus a collection of vintage and found objects. And if you’re toying with opening up a shop in Red Hook yourself, you can meet other small business owners, get questions answered, and tour available spaces with Realty Collective (351 Van Brunt St.) at 1 and 3pm. The fact that shops are decorating their windows for the holidays in hopes of winning the “Best Red Hooker Window Contest” should give you an idea of the good people you’d be joining.
