On Saturday, December 19, Design Within Reach of Adams Morgan, D.C.'s coolest furniture showroom, hosts the 4th Annual Holiday Booty Market. Shoppers can experience the modern wonders of Design Within Reach home furnishings, while getting their last minute shopping done from some of their favorite local Crafty Bastards!
'Tis the season to buy handmade and at this event you can find the best of this region's handmade gifts, sold to you directly by the local artists and artisans who make them.
At this annual event, that DCist.com deems the "winter version of Crafty Bastards", you can peruse aisles of craft vendors (indoors!) while enjoying refreshments and music.
This year's vendors bring you a wide array of gift options at affordable prices. Featured items include hand-stitched coasters and placemat sets by This Chickadee, homemade soaps made by Biggs and Featherbelle, recycled leather cuffs made from vintage belts by Fisticuffs and plush animals from upcycled sweaters by Tigerflight. You can also find hand-printed items by illustrator Jaime Zollars and all manner of Zombie Plague Holiday items from Tina Seamonster. Denada Design will be showcasing some of her famous scarves and 60bugs will have awesome hand-printed and -embroidered shirts and accessories for the hip little ones on your list. All vendors are Crafty Bastards veterans and thus awesome!
The first 100 shoppers will get a fun goody bag and there will be snacks and temporary tattoos provided all day at this free event!
The Holiday Booty Market is organized by local crafters, Tina Seamonster, Beth Baldwin and Debbie Lee. They have organized this event for the past 4 years.
