Designing Women Market

May 7, 2021, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Free Event Admission

On Friday, May 7, 2021, the NYHistory Store will host our popular Designing Women Market, a day-long shopping marketplace to showcase exceptional products by women makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. We are excited to invite you to join us!

This year we are pleased to bring our Market back for its fifth anniversary. We missed our Designing Women and their followers last year during the COVID-19 shut-down, but by holding the Market this spring we hope to demonstrate that their resilience and creativity can prevail. In that spirit this year’s Market will be held outdoors in New-York Historical’s West 76th Street Courtyard, permitting a safe environment for all involved.

This special marketplace will feature outstanding makers whose products exemplify the creative spirit of New York City, a long tradition that includes in its lineage such pioneers as Madam C. J. Walker, Clara Driscoll, Estee Lauder, and B. Smith. Our participants are among a select number of women designers we respect and admire for both their success and for the quality of the products they bring to the marketplace. Our Designing Women produce a unique range of jewelry, clothing, and accessories.

The NYHistory Store believes that the interaction between history lovers who support our business and the women producers living out their stories of creativity and commerce, is a positive demonstration that we each make history matter every day.
