The Indie Verdict 

Wednesday, Dec 2 2009
If any junk turns up at today’s craft fair, don’t blame the artists — what you consider crap might very well be, to a middle-aged Midwestern dad on a soul journey, a nice enough driftwood dreamcatcher. Instead, blame Giant Robot’s Eric Nakamura, Crafty Wonderland’s Cathy Pitters and Torie Nguyen, Etsy vice president Matthew Stinchcomb, and Craft Magazine editor Natalie Zee Drieu. These people are the guest judges of Bazaar Bizarre. They decided which artists and designers got to participate and which did not, making the event safe for the ever-growing subculture that prefers handmade indie goods, which Bazaar Bizarre has been championing since the first fair in 2001 in Boston. Along with more than 100 vendors, the event features artist-staffed DIY booths and the Swap-O-Rama, where you can unload your old clothes and then tweak your new “upcycled fashions” with the help of DIY experts.
