About the Partners
This is the 3rd year the sale will take place and this year the DUMBO Improvement District has some great partners, including Halcyon who will be hosting the after-party.
Halcyon is an awesome music and lifestyle shop in the heart of Dumbo. Guided by core principles of independence, authenticity, quality and community, they have been an important brick and mortor destination for 10 years (with their original space on Smith St in Carroll Gardens). Go there to find vinyl and CDs, apparel and accessories, books, posters and prints, and test drive their records on numerous record players before buying.
