But there's really nothing not to like about this folksy event, celebrating its tenth anniversary with another cozy shopfest that also features fabulous food in the basement by wizardess Erica McNeish, whose simple soups and goodies are as pretty to look at as they are good to eat. (McNeish, who's a bona fide food stylist, will also be selling cookbooks she's helped to design.) And along with Robinson's promised "Mexicolor" decorating theme, there will actually be a couple of new vendors to add flavor to the experience, including Kirsten Coplans, former proprietor of Sparrow on 17th Avenue, whose Pearl clothing line (named for her sweet deaf dog) offers refurbished vintage clothing, scarves and knit slippers.
