1309 5th Street, NE
Back in late August we learned that after 7 years Crafty Bastards would no longer be coming to Adams Morgan. Yesterday afternoon word came out that the fair would be moving to the new Union Market. From a press release:
Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair returns to Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, for another handmade shopping extravaganza!
Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is an exhibition and sale of handmade arts and crafts from independent artists presented by Washington City Paper. The ninth annual event will be Crafty Bastards’ first indoor show at an exciting new location— Union Market, the new year-round indoor market featuring 40 local artisans opening Sept. 8, 2102 with designs to be D.C.’s culinary epicenter. Union Market is located at 1309 5th Street NE in Washington, D.C., and accessible via the NoMa-Gallaudet University/New York Ave. station on Metro’s Red line.
Crafty Bastards at Union Market will have ticketed admission. Tickets are $10 and will be available for purchase Sept. 28, 2012, at washingtoncitypaper.com. A limited number of VIP tickets will be offered for $25, providing early shopping access before the doors open for general admission.
