Any Bust Magazine fans out there? If so, you are well aware of their mind-blowing Craftacular fairs they throw each year. I try to take the day off from the bakery each time they put one on because you can literally spend hours wandering around and marveling at what each crafter has to offer. Plus, if you get hungry there's tons of food and drinks and good music. It's my kind of party!
This year I was lucky enough to be invited to come do a book signing and I said yes without hesitation! Here's what the Bust Mag blog says about the event:
Are you ready for our biggest spring Craftacular yet? This Saturday, May 21st, from 11am - 8pm, we're bringing 100+ of the most unique indie vendors and food artisans to 82 Mercer Street in SoHo, NYC for a one-day shopping extravaganza!
Be one of the first 300 shoppers and you'll receive a goodie bag packed with swag. All you BUSTies won't want to miss these -- we're giving away special BUST Magazine tote bags that were created just for this event by Night Owl Print Shop.
In addition to shopping, two amazing chef-authors will be signing and selling copies of their new books. Come meet them in person!
At 3pm, Erin McKenna, owner of Babycakes vegan bakery will be signing BabyCakes Covers the Classics: Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes from Donuts to Snickerdoodles.
At 5pm, Gabrielle Hamilton, owner of the Lower East Side restaurant, Prune, will be signing Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef.
Hungry? We've got you covered. In addition to our specialty food vendors, who are selling everything from cupcakes to pickles, the Red Hook Lobster Pound's new food truck will be parked outside, serving up their famous lobster rolls. For dessert, pick up a gourmet ice cream sandwich from the Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck!
And as always, DJs -- DJ Suzy Chase and DCD Collective -- will be spinning the grooviest tunes as you shop and nosh.
Tickets are $3 at the door.
R.S.V.P. on Facebook and let all your friends know you'll be attending!
