Hey AT Bostonians, if you like to give unique homemade, handcrafted DIY wares for Christmas and you're around the city on Sunday, you're in luck. The Bazaar Bizarre is holding its yearly extravaganza. Details after the jump.
The Bazaar Bizarre isn't your granny's craft fair.. it's more like crafting with a twist. The fair began in 2001 in the Boston-area as a hodge-podge of friends and acquaintances cobbled together their handcrafted DIY wares to sell, and staged an offbeat entertainment extravaganza. Now the Bazaar has grown to include Cleveland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Mateo and Austin, Texas.
We've gone in previous years and have seen lamps made from vintage tupperware, uniquely deconstructed tshirts, furniture and jewelry made from recycled and random materials, and one-of-a-kind wacky items. There's even a DJ spinning music. For a flavor of some of the vendors at this years fair, you can read interviews with some of them at the Bazaar Bizarre's blog.
Oh, and for more uniquely handmade Christmas gifts, don't forget Design Hive, the new Cambridge Indie Designer Market open on Saturdays until December 20th!
