Those Crafty Bastards...No, Really.


Presented by alternative newsweekly Washington City Paper (WCP), Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair took place earlier this month in the Adam’s Morgan neighborhood of DC. And who are the Crafty Bastards, you ask?

For the past seven years, WCP has demonstrated its continued support to the indie craft community by throwing this annual event to showcase handmade alternative arts and crafts.  Patrons can discover – and purchase – fun and funky new items and meet the artists who created them. In turn, the artists show off, sell their loot, and get to know their audience. Everybody wins!

Here’s a look into this year’s bastardom.


A blimp constructed from Monopoly money


Rad skate decks


Golden Girls tea towels
(Which sold out 30 minutes after I shot this photo.
Do you know what a great gift this
would have made for dozens of my friends?!?)


Super cute, adoptable pooches from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue!


Tricked out tees


Cat rainbow buttons
(Really, I didn’t know how else to describe this.)


The day grew warm in the sun. Thankfully, the good folks at
Casey Trees were handing out these cute fans!

You can learn more about Crafty Bastards by checking out their blog.

Until next year, you Bastards…when that Golden Girls tea towel will be mine!

Supporting local artists? Who’s your favorite Crafty Bastard?
