Congress of Curious Peoples: The Strange and Unusual Market

Sunday, April 15, 2018, 12pm-6pm

The Strange and Unusual Market, a showcase of unique artist, crafters and creators, selling their amazing products. For the two weekends of The Congress of Curious Peoples, we will have a variety of vendors selling things you wont find just anywhere. We have selected vendors who embrace the spirit of what The Congress of Curious Peoples is all about. So if you are looking for that special gift or item for yourself, come check out The Congress of Curious Peoples and The Strange and Unusual Market!


Planet Zoot - Screen printed apparel and a variety of jewelry / stash boxes, mini paintings, pins, stickers, etc. all adorned with their own paintings and designs.

SinisterCre8tions - Many of the dolls and other items created are rescued from becoming trash in a landfill, some are adopted from perhaps haunted places, and others are new. Each doll created is one of a kind, with a unique personality and function, some for decoration and some for conversation pieces. This is an ART doll, she is fragile and not to be played with. Most are porcelain unless stated otherwise. SinisterCre8tions are not for the faint of heart, or those who are easily frightened. Especially not for children. All of the dolls are hand painted, no two are ever exactly the same. They are OOAK (one of a kind) pieces. This makes them imperfect by nature, so any hairline cracks, flaws, roughness, or texture discrepancies, are part of the piece's charm. Dolls are repainted to look creepy, gothic, scary or spooky. Great as Halloween prop or just for creepy year round decoration.

Crow's Moon Adornments - selling a variety of handmade and vintage jewelry as well as handmade herbal soaps.

ArtCade - Pinball art made out of old playfields and lit with LEDs, made to hang on the wall. Art made from old / broken/ discarded toys, nightlights from pinball popbumer caps, framed pictures of pinup style girls and of vintage Halloween costume images. 

Bree & Milly - Coconut oil-based hair and body products with essential oils moisturizes and softens the skin without feeling heavy or greasy.

Parlor Trick Prints - Parlor Trick Prints is a collection of handmade prints, wood carvings, wood transfers, pins and more created by Staten Island artist, Keri Sheheen.

Be*YOU*T-Full Jewelry - Truly one-of-a-kind, handmade bracelets infused with healing. Just like each person, each piece is unique and "Made With Love". A variety of colors and materials (including pearls, crystals, semi-precious stones, charms, etc.) are used and can be customized to your specifications. Women's bracelets, earrings, bracelets/earrings sets and men's bracelets are all available. A perfect gift for family, friends, colleagues or yourself for birthdays, special occasions, Mother's Day or ANY day!

Grey Moon Botanica - crafts simple ingredient magic for body and home in the heart of Coney Island. Our teas, incenses and skincare are made by hand in small batches with ethically sourced ingredients.
