CRAFTACULAR GIFT GUIDE: 5 Local Vendors We Love!

by Anastasia K Zimitravich

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.

Support local craftswomen and give a virtually irreplaceable piece of Brooklyn to someone you love. Just in case the vast list of over 200 vendors triggers a wide-eyed decision-paralysis, we’ve compiled a list of five must-see vendors to complete your holiday shopping list:
