Every Memorial Day Weekend is the Dance Africa festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). A celebration of African and African-American dance, music, and culture. My favorite part is usually the African Bazaar – lots of stalls selling bags, jewelry, creative African Print fashion and accessories. This time I didn’t splurge, I just bough two pillows from Origins Style by Nasozi, Lion-shaped studs, and Bangles for 2 Dollars a pair.
Here are some impressions of the bazaar. If you haven’t been yet, mark it in your calendar for next year!

I really kicked off my summer wardrobe – I love this event more each year!
Beautiful pics! I like the pillows you got, one of them has that classic print–one of my favorites.
I just wanted to say a massive thankyou for your blog; it has been a huge help with my Textiles GCSE as my theme is African Prints! I love the pictures you take, they're so beautiful :)
oh that is cool, I am happy to hear that!
Thanks Bessie, I am really happy with them!
Oh it was such a great time! Thx for extending the invite. You took some great shots and truly captured the essence and vibrancy of the event. :-)
