Closet Gems

BY Web Intern in General

Laura Burnham is one of the super cool designers participating in this Sunday's BUST Stylist's Closet, a part of our Holiday Craftacular! It will be such a time! Along with Howell Jewelry, there is a huge range of designers. I mean, we're talking 80%20 shoes, Hellkats LA, Doc Martins, the hugely popular (a la Gossip Girl) Boy Meets Girl. And a dozen more! For just 10 buck-a-roos, you get to rifle through all the designers and TAKE home (for keeps baby!) one item of your choice. For ten bucks. Seriously. The Closet, attached to the BUST Holiday Craftacular, is open at 2 PM... Read More

Fossil Fun

BY Web Intern in General

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.

If you have fond memories of a twinkle-eyed Santa Claus squeezing his jelly filled booty down your chimney, leave a few presents and maybe chow down on the milk and cookies mom was considerate enough to leave out, be prepared to have those sugar plum fairies knocked right outta your head.

During the holiday season, it can be hard to connect with the peeps you love who are miles or even oceans away. But...have you tried good ole' fashioned finger puppetry and postcards? Jon Carling's vintage style postcards have the right touch. You can say hello or goodbye or even spread-eagle-it for a little peace sign action. His one of a kind drawings and stationary will be available at the BUST Holiday Craftacular: LA . Read More

Very Steamy

BY Web Intern in General

I am a total analog girl. So, it's no surprise that I'm into Steampunk. It is all about the path not taken. A crafty look at history. Very industrial and awesome. Check this. An antique, vintage-gold pocket watch, from EDM DESIGNS. Best in the Steampunk business. Loads of gears, spinning propellers, ornate etchings. Even a thick beaded ball and chain. Read More
Due to the displaced trains during this Holiday weekend, I was lost on my way uptown when all of a sudden (Polar-Express-style) this old beautiful matte metal green train circa 1930 pulled into the Subway station.  At the time I was too in awe to get on, but fortunately every Sunday during December, this nostalgia train will be running on the V track from 10 am to 5 pm.
