Don’t Miss The BUST Holiday Craftacular in Boston!

by Samantha Albala

The BUST Holiday Craftacular in Boston is approaching! This Saturday Nov. 22 from 11a.m.-6p.m. you can treat yo self and everyone you love at the Boston Cyclorama at the Center for the Arts. After nine years of hosting holiday craft fairs in New York, BUST is finally visiting Boston! It is a one of a kind affair with an opportunity to not only go on a one-stop shopping adventure, but also partake in make-and-take crafts, an ugly sweater booth, tasty treats, gift-wrapping, and a cat café with adoptable cats from the Broken Tail Rescue. 


The first 300 guests will receive goodie bags that include Lynda Barry’s Picture This  by Drawn and Quarterly, elegant scents from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, stitch kits from Sublime Stitching and other goodies. Plus plenty of FREE issues of BUST for everyone! Your journey through vendor booths such as Glamourpuss Creations, Zooguu, Migration Goods, and more, is sure to help you check off all the items on your wish lists. The handmade gifts and wears are sure to please, and you’ll have a day of fun with the activities throughout the day.

The inspiration from vendors will allow you to make your very own handmade treasure at the make-and-take craft booths. Then to take a break from all gifts, you can strike a pose in the ugly sweater photo booth, or grab yourself some mouthwatering treats. 


After you’ve satisfied your hunger you can also spend some time at the cat café, where you can talk to the lovely people (or cats) from the Broken Tail Rescue. The high qualities of adorable will surely keep your energies high and your heart full.


And of course, you’ll also be able to wrap your gifts before you leave and hang out with some BUSTies. We want to make sure you’re you enjoy the holidays, and there is no better way than to be surrounded by incredible friends at a Craftacular!


A special thanks to our sponsors, The Boston Globe, MailChimp, Fenway Health, and gather here!


BUST wishes! We look forward to seeing you there!
