Holiday Handmade Craft Fairs in NYC

The holiday season has reignited my desire to be crafty! So many gifts to make and craft fairs to attend. I'll be selling my handmade bags at the DBA Craft Fair for the first three Saturdays in December from 3 to 8 PM. Stop by this East Village bar, have a beer, and do some holiday shopping!

NYC has more craft fairs than I can keep up with! Here are some I'm considering attending this holiday season (stolen from Brooklyn Based and Etsy Labs):

PS 29/PS 8 Holiday Gift Fair and Pie Social this Saturday December 5th, in Cobble Hill, where staffers at Food & Wine will judge a fundraising pie contest and Rooftop Films will screen children’s films while mom and dad shop.

The Handmade Calvalcade, this Saturday December 5th, has over 50 New York artists, designers, crafters, and Etsy sellers bringing their handmade creations together for this one-day shopping event.

The Bust Holiday Craftacular, this Sunday, December 6th, has handmade wares from over 200 vendors, including handbags, jewelry, and clothing.

3rd Ward’s Handmade Holiday fair Dec. 12 at 195 Morgan Ave: along with over 120 vendors, there are free workshops like DIY Printing and freebie-filled totes for the first 300 in the door.

Brooklyn Indie Market Dec. 12 & 13, designers will donate 10-15% of their sales to Brooklyn Community Housing

The Brooklyn Lyceum’s Holiday Craft Market Dec. 19 & 20 promises original gifts for the last-minute shopper.
