Holy Craft! in The Boston Phoenix

Here's a screenshot of the blurb about the fair in the Editor's Event Picks section of this week's Phoenix...

Given how shaky glorious capitalism is looking these days, there’s no better time to start preparing for the eventual resurgence of the barter economy. But you don’t know how to make anything, you say? Gird your DIY loins and take notes at the Holy Craft Fair and Flea Market. In the same vein as the Bizarre Bazaar — only without the theremin serenades and, we’re guessing, the suffocating packed-to-the-gills attendance rate — Holy Craft brings together a slew of vendors hawking handmade knickknacks, clothes, jewelry, baked goods, and more at the Cambridge Elks Lodge, 55 Bishop Allen Dr, Cambridge noon–6 pm $1
