handmade cavalcade this weekend

Five Reasons to Shop Handmade This Weekend:
May 9 + 10 10am-4pm
The Bell House, Brooklyn

Yes! The Spring Handmade Cavalcade is this weekend!
  1. Buying Handmade makes for better gift-giving.
  2. Avoid the long lines of the big chain stores in favor of something more meaningful.
  3. Support an artist or crafter directly.
  4. Recipients of handmade gifts get something one-of-a-kind and made with care and attention that can be seen and touched.
  5. Handmade goods are the result of skill and craftsmanship that is absent in the world of large-scale manufacturing.

On May 9 and 10, cast your vote against the ascendancy of chain store culture and global manufacturing. Come to the Bell House for the Spring Handmade Cavalcade and shop handmade. Support great local crafters like Dirty Loves Clean, AdornmentsNYC,
The Original Beadscarf, Molly Shoelace, Citybitz, DewOnAPetal, Pulp Sushi, and Lingua Nigra.
