Sorry for the last minute change but the Unofficial After Prom Benefit Party has moved to One Hope Cafe at One Hope St, Hope st and Roebling.

Post Expose is a socially progressive screen-printing and design center, which allows artists, and designers to share tools, work space, and share knowledge. Memberships offer seminars on screen-printing techniques, free lectures on design and printing exhibitions, and collaborations with community based foundations.

The Hand of Fatima is one of my favorite jewelry designers. Mariam is not only tooth achingly sweet and talented, but she's also an activist and a mother of 2 baby boys that do not creep us out. I am the lucky owner of 2 of her lockets. They hold pictures of Iggy Pop and Justin Timberlake, (two men that I love the most), and I always get asked about where I got them.

YES, it's true!!! There will be spiked punch specials from noon-6 pm at the Spring Fling Craftacular! For a mere $3 you can enjoy the party libation of choice this Sunday at the Warsaw! Just keep in mind that there will be a FREE photo booth, sponsored by Metromix...and well...cheap drinks + free photo booth...you can do the math.

Birdhouse Jewelry!!! I first stumbled upon the lovely Miss Amy Lapierre of Birdhouse Jewelry at Artisits and Fleas in Brooklyn. I had long admired her beautiful, and so affordable jewelry while on my weekly stops at the flea market. And then, about 2 days before the very first Craftacular I had worked on (Holiday Craftacular 2006), I received the sweetest email from Amy letting me know that should I find myself in need of just one more last minute vendor, that she was my lady.

UPDATE!! The show has been moved to Hope St at Roebling. One Hope Cafe.   After the Spring Fling Craftacular rock the Unofficial After Prom Party at 1 hope st, One Hope Cafe. The party is a benefit for some real rightious babes and dudes who's house burnt down last week. The space was home to several of the girls behind the Lady Circus as well as one of the founders of Holla Back NYC, which we wrote about in BUST some time ago (BUST's own Emily Rems is one of the sites Holla Back Models!) If you can't make it to the show you can donate money here.

Adorable, witty, and charming letterpress prints! Each item is individually cranked through a vandercook press by Rebecca of Rar Rar Press. We're absolutely stoked she'll be with us at the Spring Fling Craftacular! Here are a few of my favs...

I'm don't know how else to describe jewelry designer Vera Balyura of VeraMeat as anything but charming, talented, and totally adorable. Think of snippets from your childhood imagination and then cast them into silver and gold- that's what her designs look like. Cowboys, and robots, and astronauts! Oh my! Vegetarian dino charm? She's got that one covered as well. Ah-mazing.

BUST's Spring Fling Craftacular is going to be so totally fresh! Sponsored by The Frisky, the Spring Fling Craftacular will feature over 50 crafters from across the country offering the very best in handmade wares. But BUST’s Spring Fling Craftacular is not just another craft fair, it is also an all-day party with an entire room set aside for dancing and mingling. Our Craftacular DJs will put the spring in your step, spinning all your favorite jams from the ‘90s all day and into the night for a prom-themed dance.

Now that fanny packs are no longer just for German tourists and roller bladers, you can get one of these sweet sacks designed by our favorite Graffiti girl, Claw Money. She designed an 8 piece line for Boosted, that include a laptop case, a tote and a duffle and various other sized bags. These are what you put your mobile devices in, or your weed. I love the gold details, plus they are faux leather so very nice for the animal lovers out there. Claw is one talented lady, and this is just one of the many projects this gal has going on. Check out this short bio of her below.
