In case you’re not panicking yet, allow me to bum rush reality onto your peace of mind: the secular holiday formerly-known-as Christmas will be upon us in exactly two weeks. “But what do I get for the person that has everything,” you ask? Well, feel free to push the thoughts of others into the back of your mind for a few days more, because our BUST Craftacular is just a couple days before the holiday:
11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday 12/19
11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday 12/20
At Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint.

British Columbian-turned-Brooklynite, Dragonfly Granola was conceived as the last resort to not give up on a favorite breakfast choice after being diagnosed with an auto-immune condition.

Critically-acclaimed author of bathroom literature, Help! I’m In Ghost Hell and How To Cheat People Out Of Money By Buying This Book, Anastasia (aka Z-Bam) is what some people might call a quintuple threat. A classically-trained kazooist, radio host, expert sneezer, music writer and cheese patriot, Ana has been doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well since 1990. “And she just keeps on doin’ it!,” says strange woman and unsuspecting mother of Ana, “She just won’t give it a rest already.” Aside from things she does to forage for food, Ana also enjoys: food, cheese, ice cream, dairy, lactaid tablets, irony, and proposing to people she doesn't know just-in-case one of them is an undercover millionaire. Get a show-stopping glimpse of Ana’s in-person talents by tuning-in to her latest television program, Why Does That Person Keep Looking At Me?.
Using the narrative that he learned from drawing children’s illustrations, Erich Fletschinger crafts whimsical apparel for the imaginative child inside of each of us.
