We’re psyched about all the exclusive, hip, and neat treats lined up for the BUST Magazine Craftacular Holiday 2010 this Sunday, December 12th, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City! Nearly 300 vendors will be bringing you their unique crafts, from one-of-a-kind jewelry to luscious bath and body products that will make gift shopping a breeze! Their handmade and imaginative items will rock your holiday socks off, and we also have some great goodies lined up to make your experience as juicy as possible.
Starting with the amazing opportunity to meet the actress, author, comedian, and crafty-lady we all love, Amy Sedaris, who will be autographing copies of her new book, Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People, a must-have for all DIY devotees. Side-splitting laughs guaranteed, with the bonus of all the crafting tips your Grandma won’t tell you! And when your tummy starts to rumble, make your way over to the Frites ‘n’ Meats truck and try their mouth-watering grass-fed angus burger with a side of out-of-this-world hand-cut double fried Belgian frites. Even if you don’t have a sweet tooth, trust us, you’ll want to stop by The Treats Truck and try their caramel creme sandwich cookie or their Mexican chocolate brownie, which will challenge your taste buds to re-define deliciousness. Couple your indulgences with a cup of NYC’s best coffee at The Mud Truck and you’ll be ready to shop ’till everyone on that holiday list is checked off, and then some! This year, shoppers also have an opportunity to donate gently used winter coats to the New York Cares annual coat drive and be entered into an exclusive raffle featuring a sewing machine, BUST Boobtique gift certificate, and other goodies. The New York Cares Coat Drive is the largest coat drive in the nation, helping 70,000 people each year, and BUST is honored to take part in raising awareness for this crucial organization. Whether you’re a crafting veteran or your interest has just now been peaked, this year’s BUST Magazine Craftacular Holiday 2010 is a thrill and a feast for everyone, so don’t miss it! See you Sunday!
