 Thank you to everyone who came out to Industry City for the BUST Craftacular featuring the BUST School for Creative Living. With over 100 vendors, and 50 DIY classes and demos, the day was full of creativity, learning, and shopping.

The event featured the second-ever edition of the BUST School for Creative Living. We partnered up with dozens of professional teachers who taught an electric variety of introductory workshops such as herbalism, yoga and macrame. Students received hands-on personal attention from skilled professionals at a heavily discounted price. Attendees also had a chance to explore the campus of Industry City participating in workshops such as Knife Skills in Brooklyn Kitchen, and chocolate making at Li-Lac Chocolates.

And of course, our carefully curated vendors made the venue come alive with their colorful designs and wares. We strongly believe that is important to stop shopping at large corporations and remember to support the individual business owner who puts love and integrity into everything they create. If you missed the event, take a look at all of the amazing vendors here.
