The 12th Annual Spring Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail/art craft show that is organized by Philadelphia’s premier indie craft shop and gallery, Art Star. Over 150 local and national artists have been chosen to set up shop and sell their wares at Penn’s Landing Great Plaza, right along the Delaware River. The event is being held once again on Mother’s Day Weekend, so come pick up a one-of-a-kind gift for mom, or better yet, bring your mom to the show for a fun day on the waterfront!
Shoppers can expect high quality handmade goods that reflect Art Star’s unique and quirky aesthetic. Erin Waxman and Megan Brewster of Art Star have hand selected a diverse collection of artists that create anything + everything, including housewares, paper goods, jewelry, 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”.
Joey Sweeney of Philebrity has curated a line-up of local bands to perform on the hour, each day. Enjoy some live music while you relax and eat lunch provided by an assortment of food vendors, including some Philly favorites TBA.
Don’t forget to get a photo with family, friends and pets to commemorate your fun day! Cut and Paste Photobooth will also be set up (Sunday ONLY) and snapping pics of guests with her crafty backdrop and always entertaining selection of wigs and props. Prints will be available to purchase for $3 each.
Make sure to visit the Art Star booth for a free raffle, play a round of ring toss and bean bag toss and take a photo with one of our handmade wooden scenes painted by artist, Andrew Zangerle. And of course, don’t forget to shop our own pop up -we’ll be bringing a huge selection of goods from our store!
