Holiday Crafts Fair 2015
Hoboken Holiday Crafts Fair – Dec. 5th & 6th
While it’s a convenient way to get “hand crafted” items (always feels better to buy this stuff than mass-produced merchandise), most of these “artisans” are not from Hoboken. Sure, they’re “local” artists from the tri-state area, these kind of shows somehow remind me of traveling gypsies peddling their wares. For what it’s worth.
One vendor I found fascinating (Rachel Funcheon Vintage Map Art) – who is selling paper weights. Paper weights? Is there even a market for anything not related to cell phones?
There is a local business (Green Pear Cafe) that will be selling coffee, tea, carby sweets and sandwiches on the 2nd floor, however.
And you can get festive by singing along with the local 12023 Girl Scout Troop on Saturday from 3-4pm.
Have fun and spend wisely!
