The BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular and Food Fair is THIS WEEKEND!

by Brenda Pitt



It’s finally time for the 8th annual BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular & Food Fair! It’s all goin’ down this weekend, December 14th and 15th, from 10 AM to 7 PM. Head to the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 West 18th Street, one of the most in-demand event locations in Manhattan, with high-ceilings and easy train access right in the heart of Chelsea! 



This year, we have some truly amazing vendors and organizations lined up to spread holiday cheer. We have the incredible dogs from SNARR, each with inspiring stories of rehabilitation, looking for love and new homes at the Pooch Room



We’re also proud to offer great workshops from experts like the Textile Arts Center, Michelle Edgemont, Your Secret Admiral, Twig Terrariums, S.W. Basics, and Luludi Living Frames. Learn how to make everything from a pretty pouf pin to an elegant terrarium, and leave with a totally unique handmade gift for you or those you love!



As always, we will have the best vendors around– over 270!– to fulfill all your delicious fancy-food, vintage, and (of course) handmade needs. There will be also awesome music from the stylings of DJs Ali Gruber, Judy B, DJ Brows, A Good Lhooq, Le Sphinx X, and DJ Shakey.



And there’s SO much free stuff, y’all. Be one of the first 300 visitors on any day and take home a free limited-edition tote full of sick swag. The free BUST Magazine Craftacular raffle is especially epic this year, featuring tons of handmade treats from Craftacular vendors, a Stanton Complete Digital DJ system, and a grand prize of a Surly Pacer road bike (worth $1800!).



As always, pick up a free copy of BUST, and bring all your friends. Admission is only $3 for adults and free for kids under 12, and we will have coat and stroller checks available! We can’t wait to see you… and neither can our canine friends! Find out more here.
