This Saturday I will be returning for my second year at the Los Angeles iteration of Bazaar Bizarre. BazBiz is an alternative craft fair started by Greg Der Ananian in Boston six years ago, and which now has four locations around the country. “This ain’t your granny’s craft show” is one way that the show has been described, but its more about reinterpretation and reclamation than it is about rejection. There’s lots of goodies to be had — there’s a high amount of homemade jewelry and clothing, but lots of other things going on as well.
As for me, in addition to the decidely non-crafty things such as books and comics, I will have my usually assortment of greeting cards (including a few new ones); my infamous “Well Hung” Christmas ornaments (some repeating from lst year, in addition to a couple new ones), art prints, and a few hand painted t-shirts. Fun starts at 11 AM and runs until 7 PM. Note: the LA show is pretty popular, and the ATM ran out of cash last year, so I would be prepared.
