A few weekends ago BUST Magazine put on our annual Spring Craftacular event and needless to say it was a hit! The craft fair was held in the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse and was packed with badass lady artists, vendors, skaters, bakers, and more. Happy shoppers lined up early to receive our legendary swag bags full of goodies courtesy of Tish and Snooky’s Manic Panic, Wonderful Pistachios, The Amplifier Foundation, Smart Women, and Hardly Art.
Inside the warehouse, customers of all ages explored the goods which ranged from quirky vintage pieces to handmade jewelry to sassy feminist apparel, and oh so much more. We would like to thank all our amazing vendors for their efforts, creativity, and quality work. Visitors also had to the chance to take part in a DIY Nail Bar courtesy of Floss Gloss, a Tarot Reading session with Maria Soledad, Portrait Painting with Akane Ogura, and Screen-Printing tutorials with Pamela Bell from Prinkshop.

The back of the warehouse held an awesome skating area where skaters of all levels could learn from the best (Girls Ride Stronger, Gnarmads, and SHUTNYC). We are so grateful for their support and eagerness to spread their love for all things skating. Finally, the NYC based graffiti legend Claw Money and her crew stopped by to review portfolios and dazzle fairgoers with rad nail art.
The success of this event would not have been possible without the support of our sponsor Green Mountain Energy. Special thanks to Urbanstems for the beautiful flowers. We feel great about working with such socially conscious companies and are grateful for their sponsorship. Also, a huge shoutout to Jules Abraham, our fearless leader. She rocks and we wish her the best of luck in her next endeavors. The BUST team could not be happier with how smoothly the fair went and how many people understand the importance of supporting feminist media. Here’s to the next Craftacular. We’ll see you there!
