boston bazaar bizarre: coming up real quick-like

Boston Bazaar Bizarre
Sunday December 7, 2008
12 pm-7pm
@ The Castle at Park Plaza
101 Arlington Street
Boston, MA 02116
$1 Admission

The Boston branch of this nationally renowned craft fair will take place on December 7th 2008 from Noon to 7 pm at the Park Plaza Castle in Boston. With the DIY/handmade phenomenon at its peak, check out the event that started it all. Shoppers can expect to find the crème de la crème of indie goods: handbags, pottery, letterpress stationary, silk-screened t-shirts, baby clothes, body products and more!

Bazaar Bizarre began in 2001 in the Boston-area as a hodge-podge of friends and acquaintances cobbling together their handcrafted DIY wares to sell and staging an offbeat entertainment extravaganza. In 2004 the Bazaar Bizarre spread to Los Angeles, Cleveland and in 2006 Make took the group under their wing to include the Bazaar Bizarre as part of the Maker Faire in the San Mateo and Austin. Bazaar Bizarre Boston will offer attendees an opportunity to purchase handmade goods, groove to djs, and enjoy local food.

Shop Sustainably, Shop Indie
Bazaar Bizarre Boston (BBB) will feature 140+ indie crafters and designers from across the country. The event will also serve as a networking opportunity for indie designers and businesses from New England and the beyond. Past Bazaar Bizarre vendors have included My Paper Crane, Craftster, My Favorite Mirror, Art School Dropout and Skunkadelia. View the entire vendor list at http://bazaarbizarre.org/boston_stuff/vendorlist.html

Indie Music, Handmade Nation and Food!
Holiday grooving DJs will be providing entertainment throughout the day, and as always you can catch Holiday Thereminist Extraordinaire, Jonnie Spaceman. Words cannot describe the love and goodwill of the people for Jonnie Spaceman, a stalwart feature of the Boston Bazaar Bizarre. With his inimitable theremin stylings, Mr. Spaceman has redefined for the ages both "indie rock" and "Christmas Carol." .

Handmade Nation documents a movement of artists, crafters and designers that recognize a marriage between historical techniques, punk and DIY ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism, and art. Fueled by the common thread of creating, Handmade Nation explores a burgeoning art community that is based on creativity, determination and networking. Check out Handmade Nation's table for a screening of a 20 clip from the movie.

At least 3 food vendors will be providing all sorts of snacks and food to help fuel our shoppers. Petsi Pies, Snacks, Crackers and Pop, and Mr. Puppovich's Odd Beverages & Uncommon Delights will be providing fuel throughout the day to help you keep on track with shopping!
