BUST Magazine Craftacular
With over 300 vendors and their crafty wares on display, this year's BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular at the Metropolitan Pavilion was an excellent one-stop for more creative holiday gifts, and we're breaking it down with some of our favorite vendors so you can get in on the action if you missed it. Ordinarily we'd run kicking and screaming from the idea of a "craftsfair" as a place to buy gifts for anyone we want to remain friends with, but crafters with the BUST Magazine seal of approval are of a different ilk.
We picked up some gifts for our friends and family, and maybe a few things for us, too. There were sexy and cool leather fingerless gloves in bold colors from Lamia Design, there were awesome nerdy T-shirts with just the right amount of irony from Made With Awesome and there was so much great jewelry we might need a few more necks and fingers if we don't give some of this stuff away. But maybe our favorite holiday trend were the mean spirited cheeky greeting cards and "mean bags" that made us splutter out loud with laughter from MaybeYouShouldDie.com. Check out some of our favorites. --Gabi Porter
