Bundle up, and discover the little gems and gifts your local community has to offer at the Holiday Crawl, Bed-Stuy style!

Bridge Street Development Corporation presents its annual “Bed-Stuy Style: Holiday Crawl,” on Saturday, December 16. The crawl celebrates the small businesses and artisanal shops from Central Brooklyn’s bustling business corridors and offers a wide array of goods – and gifts!

Participating businesses include Bed-Vyne Wine & Brew, Tilly’s, Life Wellness Center, 500 Men, Sanctuary Gallery, Casablanca, peace & RIOT, and others, along Bedford Avenue, Tompkins Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard. Bridge Street offers complimentary luxury shuttle vans along Malcolm X Boulevard and Tompkins, Bedford, and Lafayette Avenues.

Small wares, clothing, art and accessories, food and drinks, this special holiday crawl leaves little left to desire. And, if you need a break from all the shopping and crawling, don’t fret: the neighborhood’s eateries will help ease the “holi-daze” with food and drink specials, accompanied by performances and presentations from local, independent artists.

peace & Riot is one of the many local shops participating in the Bed-Stuy Style Holiday Crawl.

Tilly’s will host live performances, an open mic portion and a talk on masculinity and the arts featuring Dasani Ahanu of TV One and Kwebana Foli of Flowered Concrete, bosted by Marlon Rice. DIY-creators and graphic artists A.V. Perkins and Khia Jackson will be featured at peace & Riot for a panel regarding non-traditional small business concepts, DIY and hip hop. 500 Men Making A Difference are hosting the Black NYC Holiday Expo at Magnolia Tree Earth Center with guest speakers, local artists and businesses.

So…bundle up, and discover the little gems and gifts your local community has to offer at the Holiday Crawl, Bed-Stuy style!
