The Big Crafty is today, folks, in downtown Asheville. From noon until 6 p.m. Get out and get your “shop local” on. I like the way Asheville Grown describes it:
The Big Crafty revives the tradition of the community bazaar, a lively celebration of handmade commerce, featuring local food, beer, toe-tapping tunes, and the fine wares of select indie artists and crafters. Consistently voted Best Arts/Crafts Fair in the annual Mountain Xpress readers’ poll, their guiding principle is that buying handmade is good for the community, and their aim is to make doing so fun. The free and fun for all ages events are held twice annually in the heart of beautiful Asheville, NC. They extend warm welcome to Asheville’s rich pageant of basement and backyard artists, its juried prize-winners, and those who delight in them.
Get out and check it out.
