'Reuse' Craft Show in Gowanus (and Satan Clause, Just because)

Build It Green! and Sustainable NYC present a Holiday Reuse Craft Fair this weekend, which features local artisans selling fair trade, handmade or "reuse" items.

Reclaimed Home shows examples of what's for sale here, like "gifty tile creations made out of cabinet doors and sewing machine drawers," and "recycled t-shirt pillows" made by TuraLura, who also hand-makes "Satan Clause," an anatomically-correct Santa that is actually Satan under that beard. You read that right. (She won't have any more of these before Christmas, however, but you can order one for later.)

"Frankly Santa and Satan have a lot in common," she writes on "Fond of the color red. Inciting envy and stirring up temptations and lusts and whatnot. And Santa does all of this on Jesus’ birthday! Stealing the spotlight from the baby Jesus- how much more satanic can an entity be?"

The fair takes place on Saturday-Sunday, December 17-18th from 10am-5pm at Build It Green! NYC – Gowanus, 69 9th Street, Brooklyn NY 11215

Thanks for the shoutout, McBrooklyn! I hope someday to have a little animation of Satan Claus dancing- I'm glad you enjoyed the idea of him!
