People are strange, so don’t be a stanger at the Strange Folk  indie arts and crafts festival in O’Fallon Park this Saturday.  I haven’t been the most active neighbor and nearly forgot to write about this show, which will feature over 100 vendors unique projects involving things you can actually use;for examples this stuff is Readymade.  They even made a blog, but somehow slipped under my internet benabled radar.

If you’re into customized bags, lunch boxes, and DIY Ipod cases (among other things), you’ll probably find something like that only better while you’re there.  Those who need less crafty reasons to show up (besides the tote bag giveaway) might enjoy gnoshing down on some gyros and fresh fruit from Eckert’s while listening to DJ Mad Martian manning the turntable decks all afternoon.  Plus we hear they’ll be giving away stuff that isn’t just swag all afternoon.  And tote bags.

To say nothing of fine crafts!  It all takes place this Saturday, September 22nd between 10-6pm in O’Fallon Park (that’s in the IL, no MO), where faces come out of the rain.  And bring a friend, because “faces look ugly when you’re alone”.  And I’m pretty sure the show has nothing to do with the Doors.  Still, we should go.

  2. This is one rocking craft show.

  4. This sounds like something I’d totally be into
    I think it’s neat that these little indie craft shows are popping up all over, I know I’ve been to at least a few in the past couple years, like the Rock and Roll Craft Show, etc.

  5. This reminds me of the “Cross-Stitch Diva” window decal I saw today. Just a reminder, too. The Urban Knitters are meeting at Hartford tomorrow (just like every sunday) if anyone wants to make (or learn to make) instead of buy.
