Weather = frightful. No Coast = delightful.

So what if it snows a foot this weekend?
You can still head on down to the Midtown Global Market for the No Coast Craft-o-Rama (doors open at 3PM today!).

If you’ve never been: Don’t expect potholders (I mean, I’m sure you can find them, but…) Honestly, this is my third year going (one year, when life is less insane, I may actually make and sell some handmade awesomeness), but I always find great – local – handmade items (posters by Adam Turman? Check!) for Christmas giving goodness. In the past, I have snagged great soy candles, gorgeous mittens, killer t-shirts, handbags, baby gifts, posters and art (lots and lots of posters), jewelry… I could go on and on.

If you go:
* Bring your own bag to tote around all your loot
* Bring cash … most vendors don’t take plastic
* Go hungry. There’s always somethiung awesome to eat in Midtown.

Buy local, support our thriving (and growing) independent art and craft community.

    I can’t for this. I missed last year, but really enjoyed it the first time, even if the place was a little small. Hopefully the MGM has more room.

    Glad you mentioned it starts at 3:00. We were about to head over there this morning.

    And yeah, good point, go hungry :)

    Thank you for blogging about the craft fair. I wouldn’t have known about it otherwise. I was able to buy some great gifts for my family without going to a mall–hooray!

    The snow didn’t seem to slow anybody down getting there today. It was packed.
