Seen & Heard: Whole Foods Craft Fair

••• From Whole Foods Tribeca: “Every Tuesday during the month of December [starting tomorrow] we will play host to artist vendors in our café offering unique and one of a kind gift giving items. From hand painted eco-friendly tree ornaments to knitted hats sure to impress during the upcoming cold months. Stop up and see the great items we were able to find right here in New York and New Jersey.” Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The photo is from oktak, one of the vendors.

••• Also on Whole Foods Tribeca‘s website: “Stop by our new coffee bar located at our West street entrance opening December 9 at 7 a.m. Donate a new or unused toy from December 9th through December 15th an get a free small coffee.”

••• One more Whole Foods–related post: Reader Bill Tsapalas just wrote this on TC’s Facebook wall: “Whole Foods has beautiful, fresh 7-8 foot Fraiser Firs for $49.99. No longer do we have to be insulted by the pop-up Canadian stand on Greenwich Street insulting and gouging us by charging $175 for the same tree. Just doing my part to drive these Carpetbaggers out of our neighborhood and make it a Happier Holidays for us all.”

••• Nail salon TenOverTen (above the old Delphi space at W. Broadway and Reade) is open-ish, at least for friends and family, which leads one to believe that it’ll make its new opening date of Dec. 15. FYI, its summary on Google lists it as a “nail salon + event space.”

••• Flashback time! Check out this great photo that the folks at Lance Lappin dug up: It’s West Broadway and Duane in 1985. (The blog entry about it is here.)

••• Tribeca Beauty Spa is offering two specials during December: “TBS Signature Organic Facial $91 (reg $130). TBS Organic Brown Sugar Body Scrub $65 (reg $95).” Also: “On December 14, 2010 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. we are having our annual Retail Madness sale, all retail will be buy three get one free plus our vendors are throwing in gifts with purchases.  And on December 14, 2010, we are taking 15% off all gift certificates.”

••• From Wickham Boyle: “I am still doing my little charity called Bundle which distributes baby goodies to infants born in prison. It has been very successful this year and at Christmas especially we are sending out email and posting posters to remind folks that there are still women and children in terrible need. The good folks at Mail Boxes Etc. [295 Greenwich between Chambers and Warren] are continuing to take all donating and the women at Hour Children pick up and give things to the incarcerated women and children throughout New York state. Donate your baby clothes, toys, and cribs, anything that your wonderful kids have out grown and you’re not saving.” You can also call Sandra at 718-433-4725 and she’ll send a van to pick up donations.”
