If you’re looking to have some fun this weekend and just so happen to be in the Boston area—look no further that the BUST Holiday Craftacular. Swing by Cycolrama (located on 539 Tremont St) from 11am-6pm for a two-day event is chalk full of excitement, activities, and of course, handcrafted gifts for everyone on your list. Here are just a few of the features that attendees can expect at the Boston Craftacular on December 17th and 18th.

Your One-Stop-Shop For Holiday Gifts
With over 100 unique vendors to choose from, the BUST Holiday Craftacular is the perfect destination for last minute holiday shopping. Don’t waste your time in a mall, instead stop by our Craftacular for original finds for the one-of-a-kind people in your life. Also, don’t be shy to do some shopping for yourself—you deserve to be spoiled with kickass jewelry, femi-nasty pins, and beautiful knitted accessories. You’ve earned it for being one hell of a feminist this year.

This year at the Holiday Craftacular, Broken Tail Rescue will be hosting a cat cafe with a handful of precious adoptable pussy cats. That’s right, not only do you get to shop till you drop this weekend but you can take a break from spending to cuddle up to a furry friend as well. And who knows, maybe in addition to going home with a bag of handcrafted goodies for your friends and family, you will take home a feline friend as well!
