Feeling crafty? Or do you just appreciate others who are? Either way, you’re going to love CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles, the country’s largest permanent indoor craft marketplace, located in San Pedro. And if you head over on Friday, August 24, you’ll be able to enjoy a massive Etsy craft party from 7:00 to 10:00 pm.
The craft party, part of Etsy’s Craft Party 2012 global celebration, will include loads of craft projects with the expert makers of CRAFTED (a small materials fee may apply for some booths), artist demos, food trucks and a wine bar, a live DJ and photobooth, a nail bar, a tie-dye station, a message-in-a-bottle make-and-take, and of course shopping and browsing around CRAFTED market stalls. Even better: There’s no charge for admission, and parking is free.
CRAFTED marks a total makeover of a classic World War II-era waterside warehouse that is now home to hundreds of individual craft artists, designers, and artisanal food makers. The artists present their unique handcrafted goods in a vibrant patchwork of market stalls. You can find apparel, art, food, jewelry, home decor, paper goods, and toys in this massive marketplace every weekend. Read more about some of the CRAFTED LA members here.
CRAFTED is located at 110 & 112 East 22nd Street, San Pedro. Phone: (310) 732.1270. Click here for driving directions.
