The BUST Craftacular took over SoHo on Saturday, filling the space at 82 Mercer with over 100 vendors and more than 2,000 craft enthusiasts throughout the day.
Set-up began early. 8 AM on a Saturday is not a time I see often, but it was totally worth it to see the transformation of the space.

Potter Abby Berkson started her business, Abby Berkson Ceramics, out of her home studio in Easthampton, Mass back in 2010 and her pots and mugs are just plain adorable.
