Saturday, November 8th + Sunday, November 9th, 11-7pm
We are excited to announce that we will be bringing our popular Art Star Craft Bazaar indoors this fall to the 23rd Street Armory! We hosted one back in 2011 and are pleased to be bringing this show back once again.
The Fall Art Star Craft Bazaar is a retail art/craft show that is organized and juried by Philadelphia’s premier craft shop, Art Star Gallery & Boutique. 60 of the very best independent makers from Philadelphia and beyond have been chosen to set up shop and sell their wares. Shoppers can expect high quality handmade goods that reflect Art Star’s unique and quirky aesthetic. Erin Waxman + Megan Brewster of Art Star have hand selected a diverse collection of artists that create anything + everything, including housewares, paper goods, dolls, prints, ceramics, clothing, accessories, paintings/drawings, sculpture, and many other one-of-a-kind curiosities. All items have been handmade from a variety of mediums that include fabric, clay, glass, wood, paper and much more. The show will also include artists who will be selling select works (t-shirts, prints, cards, etc) that have been reproduced in small batches, if not locally, within the US. The Art Star Craft Bazaar aims to offer something for everyone (women, men, kids, moms, babies, teens, etc) at a range of prices to accommodate all budgets.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to try out a variety of crafting techniques and take home something special that they made with their own two hands! A selection of local artists and art orgs/non-profits will be providing family friendly art/craft demonstrations and “Make + Takes”. We will also host a selection of local food trucks, which will be parked alongside the venue and will include Seoul Food, Pie Stand, Foolish Waffles (Sun only), Poi Dog, and Delicias and Samosa Deb. Sweetbox Cupcakes and Yards Beer will be set up inside. Our handmade Ring Toss and Corn Hole Games will be set up for customers to play for free as well. So come on out for this two day celebration of all things handmade and get a jump start on your holiday shopping!
