BAM Dance Africa Bazaar is a Memorial Day weekend tradition in Brooklyn, packed with dance, music, film, art, and community events from Africa and the diaspora—plus the one-and-only outdoor bazaar of African crafts, food, and fashion
This is my second year I attending BAM and I took a few photos to share with my followers.
These are just some of the great pieces they sold there. Masks, bracelets, drums and African statues.
Me wearing one of the scarves I designed.
Peg legged denim jeans with Osborn flats.
I bought the pink skull bracelet from one of the vendors.
This lady sold some amazing neck pieces. I bought one but I really wanted to get more. I wish you guys could have seen these necklaces.
I decided on this piece but I will be visiting her store Tafari Tribe in the future.
Looking through some fabric.
Here are some of the things I scooped up at the Bazaar.
This wouldn’t be a first for Urban Outfitters: Similar claims of jewelry jacking have been brought against the national retailer for years. “I understand that they are a business,” Stevie says, “but it’s not cool to completely rip off an independent designer’s work.”
She notes that she’ll no longer shop at Urban Outfitters or its sister brands, and will instead “do my best from here on out to support independent designers & artists.”
