To market, to market, to peruse the modern cool yet appealingly classic artworks, jewelry, fashions, accessories and more from a quartet of talented, up-and-coming local designers. And all of the above awaiting buyers in one place … er, one market … on one fine spring day.
Sip + Shop at BLT Market as they introduce a new pop-up local designers market hosted by the regional and seasonal Waikīkī restaurant, to celebrate the creations of Hawai‘i mixed-media designers while making it easy for buyers to find wares from each artist in a single location. BLT Market is hosting the local designers market on Saturday, March 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with attendance free and open to the public.
The four Hawai‘i-based designers on hand to show off their selected, custom-made merch and talk story with buyers at BLT Market’s Designers Market will be:
- Jana Higa/Blue Bird Jewelry Hawai‘i. Higa’s hand-crafted jewelry line – designer described as “wearable luxe” – is all about freshwater pearls and colorful semi-precious gemstones matched with engaging design in necklaces and earrings.
- Kehaulani Nielson/Kahulale‘a. Repurposing vintage Hawai‘i prints into boldly colored and patterned contemporary accessories is Nielson’s design forte. Her collection also features a line of leather clutches and island-inspired scarves.
- Lauren Roth/Lauren Roth Art. Roth’s brilliant color palette and playfully inventive graphic design – inspired by Hawai‘i flora and marine fauna – are the calling card of her wearables, fashion accessories, art prints and greeting cards.
- Jen Sarsuelo/Tidepool Love. Weekends in the surf and sand near her family’s North Shore O‘ahu beach home and the everyday joys of Hawai‘i life are reflected in the fun, familiar design of Sarsuelo’s jewelry and accessory line.
“We are very excited to host this inaugural sip + shop at BLT Market to showcase the beautiful artwork, jewelry and more of these talented and local designers,” said Amanda Kullman Kipp, BLT Market General Manager. “This gathering is one more way we can continue to support the talented and growing Waikiki community while encouraging diners to join us after they shop to try our new brunch menu.
Everyone showing up at Sip + Shop – whether attending, perusing, buying or all three – will receive a glass of complimentary bubbles, and 15 percent off their bill should they decide to stay a spell (and stay they should) to enjoy BLT Market’s tempting brunch menu. BLT Market is located on the Lobby Level of The Ritz-Carlton Residences Waikiki Beach and offers up to 4 hours of validated valet parking when guests visit the restaurant.
