BUST Magazine's Annual Craftacular Is Happening This Weekend for All Your Silkscreened, Découpaged and Knitted Holiday Needs

Posted By on Fri, Dec 9, 2011 at 2:19 PM

BUST Magazine's annual Craftacular is happening this weekend, an event that corrals over 200 DIY vendors peddling their handmade jewelry, art, houseware, clothing, food, toys, etc. into a warehouse in Soho. It's Etsy, but in 3-D. The shindig has expanded into two days this year (Saturday, 11am-8pm; Sunday, 11am-7pm) and includes how-to classes on projects featured in the BUST DIY Guide to Life for those inept with crafts but whose hearts are in the right place.

Fair warning, last year I went to buy something for my sister; ended up with a wallet silkscreened with a picture of a rabbit, a charm bracelet, and two découpaged light switch plates for myself. I don't even know how it happened. There was so much to look at, and so many things had pictures of birds on them, and there was a DJ playing a bunch of Grizzly Bear songs, and I just sorta got caught up in the moment — the point being if you have a habit of buying stuff for yourself while Christmas shopping for others, this is a double-edged sword, but, ugh, so worth it. Admission is $3 and the first 300 shoppers each day get a free goodie bag. Check here for more info.
