This Sunday is New York's BUST Holiday Craftacular! So rad. Over 200 hundred booths full of goodies. Goodies you can't get at normal stores. Meaning they're 100% hand-made or indie-designed (aka 100% awesome). Ever since I saw Lucy at the Museum of Natural Science, I've had a huge girl crush on fossils. So, naturally (pun intended), Photosynthesis is one of the many vendors I am pumped for at the BUST Holiday Craftacular . vintage dresses + leaves found around NYC + fossilization + screen printing = cute.
Everyone in the office kinda went loopy for these adorable undies that Callie pulled for a shoot recently, and I'm excited to see that they will be at the Craftacular this Sunday-yay! These come in boy or girls styles, only 15 bucks. They also make shirts, dresses and bags. Check out Ruffeo Hearts Lil' Snotty at table # 118.
This might be the BUSTiest comic I've brought you yet, darlings. And yet it's been recommended to me by oodles of boys, which just goes to show that good writing, despite lots of idiots thinking otherwise, is good writing no matter the gender of its lead characters or creators. I wanted to go dancing earlier today, after shoving off the weight of term papers on weightier subjects, and then I read this comic, and now I REALLY want to go dancing. I didn't read the first Phonogram but I read (and BUST-ed) Suburban Glamour and got a super-comics-crush on Jamie McKelvie's sugar-candy-sweet art.
Deja Taylor is not your average performer. At only 19 years old, she is an award-winning spoken word artist, a playwright and will be featured in a 2009 HBO Documentary about youth slam poetry. She's also not afraid to step up for causes she believes in. Deja recently joined forces with DJ Spooky to produce a video for NARAL Pro-Choice's free.will.power. initiative. Power is the third video in a three-part series that takes a fresh look at what it means to be pro-choice today. The free.will.
Years ago when I lived in Paris, one of my favorite resto's was this weird Fondue place called  Le Refuge des Fondus in Montmarte. It's dingy and has long communal tables and the only thing on the menu is Fondue, and wine served in baby bottles! Classy. It's a real tourist trap, but loads of fun, and now there is one opening in NYC, right in my neighborhood! I do love cheese, so I'm super excited to try the copy cat Cave des Fondus, located at 20 Prince Street ( at Elizabeth). it opens today, so I'm sure to hit it this weekend and report back soon.
Stumbled upon this adorable sign while walking to the train yesterday. Totally mac and cheezy I know, but it made me smile...
Talk about toe touching. Ashi Dashi socks are the socks to stock this holiday season. Plus, Kanye West thinks they make your feet fly. These rockin socks, even syles you can't get online, are available at Ashi Dashi's booth at the BUST Holiday Craftacular New York ! Yehaw! With over 200 hundred vendors, and warm toes, New York's BUST holiday Craftacular will be quite spectacular. It is this Sunday. December 14th at the Metropolitan Pavilion (on 18th street. btw 6th and 7th ave.) from 10 am till 7:30 pm.
Now that LA and London are done, it's time for the big momma that is the NYC Holiday Craftacular. Please come over to the event happening this Sunday Dec. 14th (note the date printed in the current issue of BUST is wrong!!- sorry about that). We will be at the Metropolitan Pavilion, at 18th street between 6th and 7th ave. from 10 am till 7:30. You can take the F, V to 14th and 6th, or any train to Union Square. Aside from all the fantastic crafters to shop from, there will be Two Boots Pizza, Babycakes baked good (yeah) and beer served from 3-7.
I had an action packed whirlwind of a weekend in London, where I attended the first ever London based BUST Craftacular! I arrived Friday and went immediately to Top Shop to scope it out. It was sort of a much bigger and trendier H+M, and not as cheap, but they did have alot of cool stuff. I can't wait for it to come to NYC-hurry up, man! Then I met up with our old pal Sheila B and the two lovely girls who put on the Craftacular, Clarie and Vicky, for some drinks and meat pies at the pub.
One of my favorite jewelry companies, Digby and Iona will have a table this year at the NY BUST Holiday Craftacular this Sunday selling their salty and sweet jewelry, so come on down and scope em out at The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th street, Table #7.
