There are a bunch of events coming up that feature gifts and other products by local crafters and artists. Here are a few that we've noticed.
If you know of any others, please post about them in the comments.
The Buy Local Bash
Saturday, November 15 from 5-9pm
at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy
Capital District Local First's 2nd annual event features all sorts of vendors, from food to books. And there's music from Ashley Pond, Ben Karis-Nix and Amanda Rogers -- that beats the heck out of regular store muzak.
November 28 (5-9p) and 29 (10a-5p)
The Frear Building in Troy
This first-time event promises to showcase "jewelry, clothing, housewares, embroidery, canvas work, collage, sculpture, cartoonists, and every other kind of "handmade" good by independent artists."
December 6 and 7, 13 and 14
various locations in Albany and Troy
Grand Street Community Arts has coordinated this craftstravaganza with "handmade gifts created by local d.i.y. makers: crafters, stichers, & artists."
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
