Crafty Bastards, the annual arts and crafts fair hosted by Charleston City Paper returns this December and we’re looking for vendors to show up and sell some of the best handcrafted goods you didn’t know you needed. It’s like your usual holiday shopping but a lot more fun (trust us, we’ve knocked out all our gift needs in one fair).

Interested in selling your goods? Artist applications open on Fri. Aug. 30 and close on Fri. Oct. 4. The application is easy to fill out online, with a $20 fee. Check it out.

Past vendors have included a number of local artists and artisans, including The Town Serif’s Danielle Fabrega, Alison Ross (who recently moved to Greenville, sad!), Penelope Design Studio’s Sarah Kay, and more.
[content-2] We’ve walked away with candles, bath bombs, gorgeous stationary — really, the possibilities are endless at Crafty Bastards. Stay tuned for more details about food and drink vendors, and opportunities to volunteer.
