The next incarnation of 3rd & B'zaar will debut tomorrow evening (Thursday) at 191 E. Third St., between Avenue A and Avenue B.

The clothing and accessories brand Lui & Lui will be headlining the space for the next year.

I spotted Lui & Lui's Sol Sanchez, assisted by her mother, Luisa Arguello, who was visiting from Argentina, working inside the mixed-vendor market and event space the other day. 

"Sol is definitely part of the original 3rd & B'zaar family," said Maegan Hayward, a 3rd & B'zaar co-founder and owner of the East Village Vintage Collective on 12th Street. She was one of the first vendors we ever had, and we were her first spot to sell her brand in the U.S. So, we are very excited to have her take over and bring her artistic vision to the shop." 

The opening evening event is from 5:30 to 9:30, and it will feature live music and assorted sales. Find more info here

The shop, which will include items from the East Village Vintage Collective and several other independent vendors, will be open starting Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
