What is it?
Now in its 5th year, Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is an exhibition and sale of handmade alternative arts and crafts from independent artists presented by the Washington City Paper. The fair is all-day, outdoors, free to attend, and will offer goods for sale, food, entertainment, prizes, and more! The next show in the DC metro area this year: Sunday, September 28th in Adams Morgan DC.


To specifically see the Baltimore Crafters involved, read the Baltimore by Hand Blog here.

When is this event and how do I find it?
Sunday, September 28, 2008, 10am-5pm at the Marie Reed Learning Center at 18th & Wyoming (Google Maps) in the hip Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.

What kinds of crafts will I find?
You won’t find mass produced or imported goods here. You will find talented vendors handpicked by a select jury for their DIY chops and singular vision selling things you never knew existed and that you may never see again! There’ll be surprises at every booth including reconstructed clothing, punk rock baby clothes, handcrafted jewelry, whimsical and demented plush toys, handspun yarn, screen-printing, avant-garde art and much more!

I will be there on Sunday helping out my buddies This Chickadee and DandelionBlu!

These new hybrid Chickadee-Dandelion Blu earrings will go fast!
