Cville Arts & Crafts Fair

August 29th, 2009 · 4 Comments · By

This is already happening! from now until 5pm. I’m about to head down the street to check it out… these have always been really awesome and fun in past years (there was one at The Bridge and 2 or 3 similar events at Satellite Ballroom — & Nailgun’s Sarah Carr played a central role in putting this year’s fair together! Thanks for keeping this event going, Sarah.)

I usually leave with an armful of cool records and great t-shirts made by my friends, although money’s a little tight this year and I may have to just look through everything and pick the best single object to take home.  But it’s gonna be really fun! Thomas Dean t-shirts, Jeremy & Allyson prints, vintage clothing, weird books, great records, misc. items, etc etc etc.  AND in addition to awesome arts&crafts there are snacks, DJing by some rad ladies (Sarah Lawson, Alison Smith, can’t even remember who else) and company of good friends on a summer afternoon that will hopefully remain pleasant.  I’ll see you there?

    been meaning to mention this, but… NIIICE flyer.
    are those Robert McCluskey drawings?

    the drawings are of anonymous origin; i found this really old, beat up “HOW TO KNIT” pamphlet at a yard sale on east market that mentions nothing of the artist but is totally awesome all the same.

    ps in spite of a few things falling through like food and jimmy blackford bringing a ton of records, i still had a blast today and it seems like everyone made money in spite of ‘hardtimes.’ i’m planning a bigger, better fair just in time for the holidays so let me know if you want to participate!

    Awesome. Sad I missed it. Hopefully I can schedule a trip back for the holiday fair.
