Art Star Craft Bazaar - You can't miss this!

If you are within a 3 hour drive, train trip or camel ride to Philadelphia, I highly recommend you leave the weekend of  May 14th open and plan a trip to the City of Brotherly Love.   For that is the weekend of the Art Star Craft Bazaar. **

Art Star is an outdoor Art/Craft market run by by Philadelphia’s Art Star Gallery & Boutique.  Over 100 local and national artists take over the Waterfront at Penn’s Landing for this two day event.   This is not your typical stuffy craft fair – these artists have a decidedly Indie bent and the crowd is a happy blend of tattooed hipsters, crunchy granola moms and people who know that supporting local Artisans is a great thing to do.

Live music and great food (including Vegan options) round out the day's offerings. 

Below is just a small sampling from a few of the talented artists scheduled to participate in the show.  Hope to see you there!
