Even Craftier Handmade Fair Supports PACA by Sara Toth

Sunday, Nov. 29

The holidays are upon us, and that means shopping. If the madness of Black Friday isn’t for you, sleep in, eat some leftovers, and plan your shopping for Sunday, Nov. 29 at the Even Craftier Handmade Fair.

The fair is a community of local makers and musicians, with crafts as far as the eye can see. A local nonprofit is supported at each fair (usually once a month), and in November, the Performing Artists Collective Alliance (PACA) will reap the benefits of your holiday cheer.

There will be acoustic sets, too, from Tommy Link, Zach Chylinski, Optimistic Apocalypse, and Justin Moyar (so much better than mall muzak, right?). It’s the perfect opportunity to give homemade presents (Jewelry! Afghans! Warm cuddly things!) to your loved ones, without all the stress.

Because let’s be honest here: you are not going to finish those hand-knitted scarves for all of your friends. Nor will you complete the irreverent emoji needlepoints, or the hand-made soaps and candles. What you will end up doing is dropping half a paycheck at JoAnn Fabrics. Then, a few days before Christmas, covered in hot glue, paper scraps, and possibly glitter, you will admit defeat and plead mercy from the Amazon.com gods. And you know how expensive shipping is.

The Even Craftier Handmade Fair saves you all that hassle — and you’ll be doing a bit of good in the process. Tis the season! — Sara Toth

12 – 4 p.m. // Tickets $1 // PACA, 1505 State St., 2nd Floor // facebook.com/evencraftier
