I sell my stuff at an Awesome store in Philly, and twice a year they host a pretty kick ass indie craft show. I will be loading up the car with a huge amount of clothing and accessories of my own and also Jes Switaj. Come check us out at booth #155.
| The Spring Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail art/craft show that is organized & juried by Philadelphia’s Art Star Gallery & Boutique. Over 140 local & national artists have been chosen to set up shop & sell their wares at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, right along the Delaware River. The event is being held on Mother’s Day weekend this year, so come to the show to pick up a perfect, 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 the unique & often quirky aesthetic of Art Star. Art Star has 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 & much more.
The event will also include Live Music by local Philly bands presented by Philebrity, as well as tasty vegetarian/vegan friendly food by A Full Plate Cafe, Soy Cafe & Sweetbox Cupcakes. There will also be the following family friendly interactive art demonstrations:
The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym will present interactive demonstrations in clay sculpting & mold making. Come sculpt an object out of clay and/or try out a simple press mold and casting.
