Craftacular Vendor Spotlight: Rainbow Alternative And Night Owl Designs

by Erika W. Smith

This weekend at the BUST Magazine Craftacular, you can stock up on awesome pop culture accessories from two lovely ladies named Nicole.


Nicole Krecicki strives to create social change through wearable art. Her apparel line, Rainbow Alternative, includes T-shirts, baby clothes, ties, and pins with LGBT pride slogans and pop culture references.

 All designs are hand-stenciled and spray-painted by Nicole, which means each item is one-of-a-kind. I love her “Yes, Really” T-shirt and The Nightmare Before Christmas ties.


You can find Rainbow Alternative designs on Nicole’s Etsy shop or at locations in Philadelphia and Australia.




Nicole Wiegand creates fun, kitschy accessories referencing literature and pop culture for Night Owl Designs. I’m currently lusting after her Daria earrings and typewriter necklace.


You can find Nicole’s pieces on her Etsy shop or at various locations in Pennsylvania, Washington, New York, Massachusetts, and Florida.


Both Nicoles will be bringing their products to the BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire! Check them out on Saturday, September 29th from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 30th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
