There’s a pot of crafting gold at the end of the rainbow this weekend. DIY lovers should take the Red Line to the NoMA-Gallaudet U and stroll on over to Union Market for the Crafty Bastards Arts and Crafts Fair.
Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, Crafty Bastards promises an eccentric display of more than 140 independent artists and vendors, family-friendly activities, food trucks and a beer garden to satisfy all your hipster dreams in one convenient location. Admission into this real-life Etsy wonderland is $10 at the door, but if you’re not convinced the entry is worth the fee, you can quickly browse the fair’s own Pinterest page.
From articles of clothing to home goods or potential dorm décor, you’re sure to make some memorable purchases. And if anyone asks where you got your knitted monogramed tea cozy, you can always lie and say you made it yourself.
Crafty Bastards continues Sunday , open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Union Market. $10 for admission.
