Not Yo Mama’s Fair Organizers, LLC (NYM) is an art fair event planning company which coordinates art and craft fairs, based out of Jersey City, NJ. NYM was started in 2009 with the idea of bringing high end crafting into the mainstream and helping develop the business of thousands of artisan crafters. We partner with local community and art organizations to set up fairs and ultimately donate a portion of the proceeds to the partnering organization. Not Yo Mama’s Fair vendors create a wide range of high-end handmade goods; jewelry, handcrafted leather, stationery, childrens’ clothing, original artwork, home goods as well as furniture. Currently run by artists Megan Gülick and Michelle Mumoli, NYM has 17 dates of events scheduled from April through December of 2012, with as far a reach as Newark and Asbury Park.
Not Yo Mama’s has teamed up with a number of Jersey City parks to bring to you high quality vendors in the beautiful surroundings of the city’s best neighborhood parks. Parks included in the series will be Riverview Park in Jersey City Heights, Van Vorst Park as well as the Hamilton Park BBQ in Downtown Jersey City. Part I of the Parks & Crafts series will take place in Van Vorst Park with vendors such as House of Minerva (recently featured at Sundance, the Oscar gift bags and the MTV Movie Awards), Buttercup Cosmetics (recently featured in About.com) accessories by Traash (made from 100% recycled plastic bags) and ButtonThis!, desserts by All Kinds of Whoopie, delicious lemonade by Lizzmonade, local food from the farmers market, Taqueria Chilango and much more!

Our Fools Fair at LITM was a blast, thanks to everyone who joined in the fun! We were able to raise some funds for Liberty Humane Society, a group that tirelessy takes care of SO many animals in need. We at NYM Headquarters love our own animals and find inspiration for our personal creative spirits through a variety of rug rats, chinchillas, puppies, kittens, lady bugs (etc). This is one of many reasons we wanted to give back to this organization.
May 12th, Liberty Humane Society and the North Shore Animal Adoption Van will be joining us in Van Vorst Park! Looking for your own inspirational “critter”??? Well, here’s your chance to meet some new friends.
(Aside from our typical, stellar line up of artists & crafters), we’ll be making cards for mom, painting faces, listening to great music (Manouche Bag @ 2pm & DJ Hellz Yeah as our charismatic MC!)
This event is FREE to the public… and coincides with the Farmers’ Market til 2pm.
So, come on out to support your local parks AND local businesses!
Having YOU there makes it all worth it for us… yes… YOU. We’re pointing at YOU!!!
