It's your last weekend to get in some good holiday shopping. Shop small, shop indie designers for a special gift. Bust Magazine's Bust Craftacular is one of the best holiday pop-ups in NYC. You'll find tons of fashion and accessory designers, jewelry makers, gourmet edibles, crafts and home decor artisans.
The magazine curates the show very tightly, so the caliber of work is impressive across all categories. It's female-centric, as is the magazine itself. I absolutely hate the word "hipster" but the aesthetic of the Craftacular defininitely skews more young and artsy as opposed to the more granny-friendly shows out there.
The show is on Saturday and Sunday of this weekend. Check out the Bust Craftacular vendors to see if you can recognize your favorite. You can make a day of it, shop the show, eat the nibbles, have a drink at the uber cool Greenpoint bars. The location is at the Brooklyn Expo Center, 72 Noble Street, Greenpoint Brookyn.
