Holiday Craft Fairs Good Way to Buy Brooklyn

In keeping with the theme of 'Buy Brooklyn,' the Brooklyn Eagle has assembled a list of holiday craft fairs taking place between now and Christmas.

This is a great way to keep it in Brooklyn, get some great gifts and feel good about it, since most of these fairs support schools, local artists and other non-profit institutions.

Saturday, December 6 is a big day for craft fairs, with the Brooklyn Friends Holiday Craft Fair in Downtown Brooklyn, the PS 321 Crafts Fair in Park Slope and the Children's French and Spanish Book Fair, also in Park Slope. In Greenpoint, the Hearts and Crafts Affair takes place on Dec. 6 and 7. Also on the 7th, the 3rd Ward Handmade Holiday Craft Fair looks like a winner in East Williamsburg.

The weekend of Dec. 13 and 14 features three more fairs; more events will take place on the 18th and the 20th.

So make your list and shop local. Full details here.
