Crafts on Columbus 2011

When I was on my way to the gym on Saturday I noticed that there was a market of some sort running from 77th to 81st street on Columbus Avenue.  On my way back I checked it out to find it was the annual 'Crafts on Columbus' market which takes place every Saturday and Sunday until the 16th of October.

They had a wide variety of stalls selling all sorts of crafts.  There was a great stand selling amazing clutch bags made from all different materials including glass and metals.  I saw some unusual bracelets made from old typewriter keys and some great leather cuffs.  One stand was selling tee shirts with various pictures of New York printed on them.  I want to go back next week and get one as I think the images used are very interesting and depict the city in an unusual way.

There were independent designers selling clothes, as well as many jewelry, handbag and hat stalls.  I really liked the clock stand at the start of the market at 81st Street, they sell original hand-made pieces.   I bought some lovely smelling soaps from a company called 'Copa Soaps' and want to go back this weekend for another look.  Hope to see you there!
