Last Holiday Craft Fair Review

Went to the last spree of holiday craft fairs for the season last weekend.  When we were in Brooklyn we were within walking distance of FOUR different events!  First, here was a little friend who got stuck on our window sill for a little while.  I guess he was just saying hello. 

In downtown NYC we went to a special Holiday Pop-Up sale with Liddabit Sweets (got a "Slurtle", a drunken turtle with beer caramel, potato chips and a dark chocolate shell) and CookieBar (got World Peace Cookies from Dorrie and Josh Greenspan -- oh my gosh, were these amazing, I almost walked back after I finished one).
Saw some Snoopy ornaments in a window near Chinatown.  I have a Peanuts Christmas collection, so I was tempted...
First stop in Brooklyn was at the Lyceum where we went to a great fair in the spring.
Then to the the Brooklyn Craft Central's Legendary Holiday Market in 2 Locations: #1 was the Textile Arts Center.
I totally want to go back there for a class or an event sometime soon now that I know how to get there.
Cool, pretty stuff, including the best quote on a tote bag ever: "I knit so I don't kill people", haha, love it.
Then to Littlefield Performance Space.
And then over to the gifted holiday market of the Brooklyn Flea at Skylight One Hanson.
What a breahtaking space!
At a wedding this summer some of the original tables from when the building was a bank were used in the dining room (photo by Boutwell Studio).
The Big Social Holiday Market takes the Hester Street Fair indoors on Mulberry Street.
And last, but not least, the Jersey City Craft Mafia held a Holiday Market too!  Phew, busy season...
