Urban Cricket and Pamela Barsky, two creative silk screen printing and design companies, have moved in to the store at 29 Essex. Urban Cricket is made up of partners Audrey Nasar and Gloria Erani. The duo started selling their fresh and funny tees at a table in Union Square. Pamela Barsky does crisp (and funny) zipper bags. They all met as vendors at various markets (including the Hester Street Fair) throughout the city and recently decided to team up to find their first “brick and mortar” location together.
Nasar says they didn’t want to be in Brooklyn and they were surprised to find commercial space that wasn’t sky high here in the neighborhood. They don’t have a sign yet but they are planning on using the name “29 Essex” followed by “Home of Urban Cricket and Pamela Barsky.” So far, they say, they are loving being below Delancey.
