The party runs 6-9 p.m. Saturday at Venue 222 in Over-the-Rhine. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here. Has Pinterest got you starting crafty projects that never seem to make it to completion? Bring your D.I.Y. supplies, incomplete projects and inspiration along as Fabricate and Crafty Supermarket join forces to present an Etsy Craft Party Saturday.

Merry Craftmas

Locals show how crafting is no longer just for grandmas and Girl Scouts

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 24, 2010
When most people think of arts and crafts, two images typically come to mind. Some think of the classic church basement craft show where retired ladies hawk doilies. Others might remember second-grade art class, where they made handprint turkeys and might or might not have eaten paste. But what about a marketplace of young urbanites buying and selling items like handmade books, yoga mat bags and vintage jewelry that draws a crowd of thousands? That's exactly what goes down at the Crafty Supermarket.  

Cincinnati's New Car Smell

CityBeat readers highlight a variety of 'best new things' that excite them

The Best of Cincinnati issue is an excellent place to find the kind of information you need to refute Know Nothings, people who like to tell you (and the world) how Cincinnati is a boring city where nothing new ever happens. Take the readers poll category "Best New Thing," for instance. As a snapshot of where Greater Cincinnati is circa Spring 2010, the top vote-getters form an impressive list.
