Patchwork, a fair of DIY arts & crafts for sale. I felt like I'd fallen into etsy. I saw stationery, printed t-shirts, upcycled sport coats, hand-decorated pocket flasks, jewelry made of old maps, things made of felt, things knitted & crocheted, all of it indeed crafty & cute. Chocolates & terrariums were on offer. None of this was necessarily cheap.
The event had a neighborhood atmosphere.
fiftyseven-thirtythree provided free screen printing of their "loakal" logo on attendees' t-shirts, which was a popular service.
designer of my hoodie, who turned out to have a booth there as well, even though I had assumed the event would be too cute for him.
