We participated in our first ever Crafty Bastards in Washington DC last year and it was such a great experience! This is one of the best indie craft fairs in the country. It is extremely well curated and well attended! We were honored when the organizers invited us to sit on the jury this year. The talent that applied to this show was top notch and it was so much fun for us to look through all the applications! We will be set up at the show, selling a selection of goods from our store, so come say hi if you plan to go.
Local philly favorite + Art Star Craft Bazaar regular Diane Koss of Cutesy but not Cutesy will be at the show selling her goods along with over 150 top indie crafters from the east coast and beyond! Check out the full line-up.
And because we love you, here are some little insider bits if you plan to come to the show!
– Living Social is running a ticket deal for a weekend pass + two craft beers that is available for purchase here
– In addition to food trucks and New Belgium’s Beer Garden, they have also added craft food vendors that will be selling locally-made baked goods, chocolate, cold brew coffee, root beer, maple syrup, pickles and more. Full line-up can be found here
– DC Public Library will host several hands-on projects at their booth, including a 3D printer. And, there will be a special tent dedicated to DIY projects for kids!
– Check out Crafty Bastards’ Pinterest Page for Shopping Guides!
Lastly, I ate one of the best sandwiches of my life at Crafty Bastards last year! It was the Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi from the Lemongrass Food Truck. I was so excited to see that they would be back again. Get it – you won’t be disappointed.
We hope to see you at Crafty Bastards in DC in a couple weeks!
