The MTP Peace and Love Tree has made her annual debut on December 13th. She hung out on the Greenway Arts Main Stage in the Food Court Lawn through the end of 2015, and now has to make her way back to hibernate along with the rest of the #TradingPostTrees. Check out their adventures on the MTP Instagram by clicking here! Until next year…
Last Sunday’s Cutie Pie of the Day (@iambentleybug) became fast friends with the #TradingPostTrees. Every year the interns at Greenway Arts Alliance bring the trees to life, using their creativity and sense of humor to give them personality. Soon they will bring our 7ft tree to life, and she will be at this Sunday’s Greenway Main Stage alongside a great line up of local bands.
Every few months we revisit this beautiful short film about LONGTIME Vendor Mark Kologi, aka the Photo Man. It’s only a few minutes long, and it touches our hearts every time we watch it. The vendors at MTP Fairfax are as one-of-a-kind as their collections and creations. Thank you Ben Kitnick for putting a focus on a very special person.
To see more of Ben’s work, visit his website or Vimeo page.
Mark Kologi is a permanent vendor at the Melrose Trading Post for almost TWO DECADES!
His space in the market is B68 along the walkway from the Main Market to the Men’s Restroom. He curates large printed photographs from local photographers in addition to the bins of curated found photographs.
