GL Brooklyn Gift Guide: Weekend Brooklyn Craft Festivals

We will be posting parts of our GL Holiday Gift Guide for the season, episodically between now and the end of the holiday season. Today, we again focus on all the Brooklyn craft festivals today and tomorrow. This is list is a sampling of what's going on, as there are many event happening and we certainly don't know about them all.

In any case, go forth and shop for locally made crafts on Saturday, December 8:

3rd Ward's Handmade Holiday Craft Fair & Open House. This first-ever event features "local artisans and craft mavens alike...selling their wares in the classic marketplace style amidst an Open House filled with free tutorials and demos in vintage furniture restoration, sustainable lamp design, video animation, metal work, graphic design and more - all led by 3rd Ward Members and top artists and creative professionals. We will be featuring special live performances, giveaways, discounts on membership, classes and studio rentals with steady beats, tasty refreshments and a fabulous photo booth on hand to keep the energy going throughout the day." The fair starts at 12 Noon and runs through 8PM. 3rd Ward is at 195 Morgan Ave in East Williamsburg Brooklyn.
