Weekend Shopping: Buy Handmade in Ballston and Brooklyn
A couple handmade shopping opportunities this weekend you should (already) know about:
Starting at 10am on Saturday, head on over to the monthly Ballston Arts + Crafts Market to scoop up Fathers Day gifts like framed photos, recycled leather bracelets, cuff links, tree trunk mugs and natural hand-crafted soap. Plus handmade designs for your home, pets and wardrobe. Check the website for a list of vendors and details.
If you're in the mood for a serious road trip, head north to Brooklyn, NY for the huge and awesome Renegade Craft Fair this Saturday and Sunday. With hundreds of the most talented indie crafters assembled in one place for 2 full days, Renegade is a handmade shopping dream. A vendor list is available online.
