More than 45 local crafters will let their hands rest and machines cool down on Friday night; they'll be behind their booths, talking shop, and selling their goods during the sixth Crafeteria in downtown Phoenix.
The event, hosted by Frances
in the Medlock Plaza
on Central Avenue and Camelback Road, runs from 6 to 10 p.m. and plays by one rule: everything must be 100 percent handmade. (Weather note: if it rains tomorrow night, Crafeteria will take place on Saturday evening.)
Crafeteria's an annual gathering for arts and crafty types and one of our favorite places to do some serious holiday shopping. This year's lineup includes a few new faces -- and more than a few names we're excited about ...
Here are just nine booths you'll have to race us to:
by Maria Mueller & Megan Hull (soy candles and lip balm)
Live music will be played by the Tetra String Quartet and shopping-fuel available from Short Leash Hot Dogs food truck, confectioner Tracy Dempsey, and Urban Cookies.
