This weekend marked the annual return of “Crafty Bastards”, where independent artists display and sell handmade goods ranging from jewelry, prints, clothes, home goods, and much more: http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/craftybastardsIMG_6582Surprisingly enough this was my first year visiting the craft fair; a couple of girlfriends kept telling me how amazing it is, and so we planned a girls’ day out starting at the fair. IMG_6583

And amazing it was. Almost overwhelming actually, so many attractive goods being displayed and offered.

It felt a lot like browsing Etsy, just in person. IMG_6592

It was certainly the perfect place to procure holiday gifts for family and friends, and well, a few things for myself.

Among other things I bought a fridge magnet showing Jesus riding a dinosaur!

After a few hours at the fair we grew tired and thirsty and moved on to Mimosas and crepes, and talked about coming back next year.
