While today suggests the ground might still be soggy come Saturday, the seventh annual Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is scheduled for this Saturday, 10 to 5, in Adams Morgan.

This year’s participants should offer a variety of hand-crafted items, food, music, and stations where you can do a bit of crafting yourself. Vendors likely to send me to the ATM this year are a mix of new-to-me and old favorites including Figs & Ginger and The Littlest Bean jewelry, Eve VanDalsen wallets, Brownstone Farms yarn, and Giant Dwarf accessories.

If seeing people turning their creative endeavors into a little business inspires you to get commercial with your own talents, you need not wait until next year’s Crafty Bastards. Positive Force DC is putting on a Punk Rock Flea Market in November – and they are still actively seeking vendors. A wide variety of hand-made, vintage, and other tables will be accepted. A table is $15 to reserve – but potential vendors should be in touch with the organizers as soon as possible, so figure out just how many anarchy-symbol vegan-yarn hoodies you can knit up by November 6th and get to work!
