What are you doing this weekend? Nothing? Great, because Crafts in Chelsea is THIS Saturday and I knowww you haven’t started your holiday shopping – yet. =)
What is Crafts in Chelsea you may ask? Another tube sock fair? Imported pashminas? Not even close. It’s only THE best handmade fair of the Fall put on by Etsy New York (and hey, it benefits PS 11 = even more awesome).
We’re shutting down 21st St. (between 8th and 9th Ave) and filling it with a curated lineup of the best in handmade. Over 100 handmade artists and delicious food vendors from all over the New York area (including yours truly) will be there with their latest collections for the Fall/Winter season. Simply a perrrfect jump start to the holiday shopping season while the weather is still lovely and Fall-like for a good ol’ Saturday stroll. And PS – Buying local and handmade makes you feel good by helping support small biz (and NY public schools) aaand ensures there will be no duplicate gift under the tree. Umm…win win? I think yes.
So what are the deets?
When?: Saturday, October 20th from 11am to 4pm
