The biggest dilemma of the BUST Spring Craftacular is this: If you have a cupcake in one hand and a beer in the other, how can you properly sift through all the jewelry, knits, vintage clothing, and other crafty odds and ends that will be on sale? Whatever your method, this day of DJs, treats, drinks, and more than 50 DIY vendors (including jewelry and accessories by Brooklyn’s own Species by the Thousands, Erica Weiner, and the Hand of Fatima) is not to be missed. Just how popular is it? More than 6,000 turned out for the Craftacular in December. Do a little spring cleaning beforehand and drop off your best items with the gals from SCORE!, who will be collecting for their “Megaswap” at the BKLYN Yard on May 29—trust us, you’ll be glad you made the extra closet space.
