Not Your Grandma's Crafts

It’s Craftacular time again this Saturday, June 16th at the High Noon Saloon. The event boasts work by twenty local artists and includes clothing, housewares, jewelry, paper goods and more. Much of the work is considered recycled or vintage art, meaning artists reincarnate photo negatives, vintage fabric, buttons, whatever—into new and usable pieces of art. I’ve seen cards constructed out of old children’s books, vintage buttons made into pins and pieces of broken china incorporated into cool wall mosaics. What’s even cooler about this hipster event is that you can sip a refreshing beverage at the High Noon while browsing the wares, and the first fifty shoppers will get a goody bag filled with samples and coupons! The Craftacular is held three times per year and admission is free.
High Noon Craftacular, June 16, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. High Noon Saloon, 701 E. Washington Ave.
