It’s finally here! Our big Crafty Supermarket is happening from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, with rad crafts, great music, tasty food and hands-on craft activities. Be there or be square!
What: Crafty Supermarket’s Holiday Show!
When: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012
Where: Clifton Cultural Arts Center, 3711 Clifton Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45220
Cost: Free to the public!
This Saturday, Nov. 17, is going to be extra crafty, because not only is it Crafty Supermarket day, Columbus is also having its big craft show that day. Craftin’ Outlaws usually happens in October, but because of scheduling it falls on the same day as Crafty Supermarket this year. We know some of our crafty fans like to go to both shows, so we have a challenge for the adventurous:
Shop at both Crafty Supermarket and Craftin’ Outlaws on Nov. 17!
Take a picture of yourself at each show as photographic proof, and present the pictures to the organizers at your last show, and you’ll get a super swag bag for your efforts! The shows are about 2 hours apart (links to directions below), which is totally doable for a fall road trip.
Craftin’ Outlaws is at The Gateway Film Center in Columbus, Ohio. General admission is free, and doors are open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This “alternative craft fair” was started in 2005 for DIYers to sell their hip handmade wares to people looking for one-of-a-kind gifts. It’s one of the longest-running indie craft shows in the Midwest! Check out the vendor list here.
Crafty Supermarket is at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center in Cincinnati. Admission is free, and doors are open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Founded in 2009, Crafty Supermarket is an indie craft show of metropolitan proportions that showcases crafters, artists and makers from all over North America and draws shoppers from Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. Check out the vendor list here.
